name for a group of springers?
« on: July 29, 2008, 02:13:38 PM »

I wonder what would be a name for a fleet(?) or group of springers?

A SPRUNG of Springers maybe? ;D

Concentrating on the 'Spring' bit

Roll of Springers       - oriental connection
Tug of Springers      - nautical connection
Palm of Springers     - average age of owner being 'advanced'
Harvest of Springers - sounds nice
Bounce of Springers - tenuous link
onion of springers    - grasping at straws now....

As a lot of people have discovered, no, he doesn't. Epitome of Insomnia is Ghost.  ::)

Ghost,
Seeing as you mentioned the Americans, has anyone suggested a 'Jerry' of Springers?

or more appropriately a 'Tide' of Springers ?
or even an 'Ebb' of Springers

tenuous link -  a shock of springers
you know when you've just got one end to attach and it flies off - a 'Ping' of springers
