The Game of Venery/Collective Nouns

You know - 'a pride of lions,' and 'unkindness of ravens.'
I've finally picked up James Lipton's book of interesting collective nouns, An Exaltation of Larks. Too much fun - it makes me want to coin a few myself. But before I offer up any of my own Inadequacy of Suggestions, here's some he compiled:

A Deck of Sailors
A Bridge of Admirals

A Mustering of Storks
A Party of Jays

A Horde of Misers
A Stall of Procrastinators
