Collective Nouns for Web 2.0

Back in the Middle Ages, knowing what collective noun was applied to a group of animals was taken quite seriously. We all know the common ones, such as herd of cows, a pack of dogs, a flock of birds, but there were plenty of obscure ones like an exaltation of larks, a murder of crows, a shrewdness of apes, etc. Time for some new collective nouns for Internet groupings.

  1. If a group of whales is a pod, is a group of teenagers an iPod?
  2. A nuisance of 4Chan members
  3. A nest of Tweeple (Twitter users)
  4. A channel of YouTube watchers
  5. A pool of Flickrites
  6. A patch of hackers
  7. A flaming of trolls
  8. A backdoor of hackers
  9. An absence of MySpace members
  10. A wall of Facebook friends
  11. A time suck of Farmville players

Coworker: “Well, {other coworker} sent a color file to this printer but this is a black and white printer.”
Me: “So?”
Coworker: “Well, you just can’t do that!”
Me: “Yes, you can, and it’s just out of paper.”
Coworker: “…”

Coworker: “I don’t want to print out this PDF.”
Me: “Why not?”
Coworker: “My monitor doesn’t have that much toner.”

Coworker 1: “My PC won’t boot. Do you think I have a virus?”
Me: “No. I know for a fact you don’t.”
