What are the new collective nouns

I'd propose the word "wunch" to describe a gathering of parasitic wastrels. For example while applied to  a group of Bankers.

Re: What are the new collective nouns

I Think there are more appropriate words to describe bankers which begin with the letter W

A "Kindergarten" of politicians.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
