A Keyboard of Bloggers?

You've probably heard phrases like a pod of whales, a herd of elephants, a pride of lions, a colony of ants, a swarm of bees and a gaggle of geese. In some cases these phrases have developed from the appearance of the animals they refer to.

Recently I ran across a listing of some animal-related phrases. Here are some that I found most interesting.

A scold of bluejays
A chain of bobolinks
An army of caterpillars
A clutter of cats
A gulp of cormorants
A rumination of cows
A wiliness of coyotes
A scuttle of crabs
A float of crocodiles
A paddling of ducks
A convocation of eagles
A conflagration of fireflies
A business of flies
A skulk of foxes
A totter of giraffes
A glister of goldfinches
A flight of goshawks
A siege of herons
A bloat of hippopotami
A howl of hounds
A romp of otters
An ostentation of peacocks
A vise of pitbulls
A prickle of porcupines
A mask of raccoons
A battery of rams
A rhumba of rattlesnakes
A ruination of rodents
A squabble of seagulls
A shiver of sharks
A venom of spiders
A scurry of squirrels
A swoop of swallows
A knot of toads
A hover of trout
A nest of wasps
A gatling of woodpeckers

And then there were a few about groupings of people, like

A drift of fishermen
A number of statisticians
A colony of bacteriologists
A plague of epidemiologists
A stalk of foresters
A blast of hunters

Which brings me to my question.....what would you call a group of bloggers?
