    Collective nouns

    Geese are a gaggle, crows are a murder, owls are a parliament. Does anyone have a good collective noun for knives?

    Quick, get this copyrighted so you'll be forever credited for creating a new term. This will put you in the same league as the people who said, "Is that the real McCoy?" or "Give 'em the whole nine yards." Well, maybe not.

    Yup. Years from now I'll be telling my grandchildren, "I'll never forget where I was when I first heard the term 'an expense of knives'".
