Collective Nouns for American Sub-Cultures (and Sub-sub-cultures)


I get twenty free minutes in a coffee shop and this is what I come up with. Collective nouns for animals are quite entertaining so pondered some for America’s sub-cultures.  I I apologize for any feelings I may hurt.  Some good, some bad.  At any rate, just celebrating America’s sub-cultural diversity.
