What Do You Call a Group of Copywriters?

I had an entertaining time last night at one of my favourite pubs, the Eagle in Farringdon, with a gaggle of assembled copywriters. There were about 10 of us at one point and, as usual, there was wordplay and cynicism a-plenty.

I did wonder what the collective noun for a group of copywriters would be (you know, as in a murder of crows, a pod of dolphins, an arsehole of account directors). I think a ‘grumble’ of copywriters seems appropriate as we’re a jaded bunch of moaning motherfuckers.

If anyone has any better suggestions, though, do leave a comment…

A drivel of copywriters? A curmudgeon of copywriters? A dross of copywriters?

By the time the client has finished mangling the copy you'd could be talking about a waste of copywriters.

'A waste of copywriters' - that's it I reckon! Or in industry parlance, 'a churn of copywriters'...

A dither of copywriters?

Maybe similar to a pod of dolphins, you'd have a 'doc' of copywriters (after all, Word dominates our blighted lives)?

Actually, you could have an 'iPod' of new media creatives?

How about a 'synergy'?
