Collective Noun for MIS

Post by Bodycon »

What are your suggestions for a collective Noun?

A giggle of men in skirts - we are not taken seriously.

A conundrum of men in skirts - works on a few levels.

A swish of men in skirts - not for minis though.

....?

A "sweep". Primarily for the long-skirt faction.

A 'Swish' is my preference.

It would have to be a "coincidence", or perhaps it could be a concurrence of men in skirts.

A concensus of men in skirts? something we all agree on? (Although, you won't get me in a mini!)

How about ‘an antibifurcation’?

I like this one because it should be the only way this is perceived, ignoring what they are wearing. However it is fun thinking of new collective nouns.

OK in the spirit of the thread, I'd go with "Swish" too!
Or "Gunna" from the Latin, just to add a classical flavour.
Could anyone seriously associate that with a pair of trousers.

How about a new word or Acronym for Men In Skirts :?:

"MEINSK", pronounced Minesk. Me-for men, in-for in, sk-for skirts = Meinsk :)
(It does sound a bit like German)

Just thought I'ld throw my $.02 worth into the pot :D
