Fun and profit with collective nouns

My favourite collective noun of all time is a "Never-thriving of Jugglers". From time to time, collective nouns like a Murder of Crows take my fancy, but somehow I can't get past the descriptive brilliance of a never-thriving. And if you're thinking "who the f*#& has a favourite collective noun?" you're just jealous.

As for the profit, another collective noun comes to mind. An embarrassment of riches. I wonder who, exactly, was so embarrassed by their wealth to come up with this. Midas? Caesar? Liberace? (just kidding). Perhaps it should be me. At last count, I've had something like eight job offers in the last three weeks. And the associated riches are rather embarrassing. This of course doesn't include the potential offers yet to come ... but more on that later.

So, anyone for juggling?

  • I came in to say exactly the same thing as JonRon! (The favourite collective noun thing, not the "lucky sod" thing.)
