Collections, gangs, throngs, crowds, buckets of and the like . . . the correct (or most amusing) terms for specific groups of bods/boddesses/beasts/kitchen implements/cells can be rather entertaining when one looks into it/scans the dark corners of the aether. Can you add anything of interest?  Bring/plonk something impressive to/on the table?

Feel free.

An entrance of actresses – (Esme runs out onto the stage with a ruff round her neck holding a skull out, she trips over her mediaeval shoes, then falls flat on her face)
