Best Collective Nouns

It was a dull stretch on Saturday, and we were coming up with collective nouns. You know, those words used to describe a group of something, like "a gaggle of geese" or "a murder of crows".

Here, then, are the three best we came up with:

Neurologists: A dither of neurologists.

Surgeons: A strut of cardiothoracic surgeons.

Nurses: A grumble of nurses.

As opposed to a group of nurses who are punching out at the end of a shift, in which case it would be "a yeehaw of nurses".
