Cool Words of the Day

The really sharp proofreaders among my readers may be thinking, “Doesn’t he occasionally do Cool Word of the Day, singular not plural?” Yes, it’s usually singular, but word lovers are going to lose their minds over this site which lists collective nouns for animals.

I’ve always had a soft spot for the subject because, well, it’s cool…as long as you love words. A group of thrush is called a mutation. Alligators together are a congregation. Giraffes in a group are a tower. Goldfish together are a bubble. I love that stuff. Don’t you?
