A group of rats is called a mischief.  Don't know why, these gals don't look like they'd get into any trouble do they?

My favorite "group of" description is for larks. An exaltation of larks. That's just plain awesome.

So what are we talking about then?

Deadly stampedes among religious pilgrims are common in India..

Lemmings must roll their eyes at this stuff.

*scratches "go on religious pilgrimage in India" off of bucket list*
