Day-glo

At the Mamma Mia café in Kentish Town for breakfast... nice brekkie, actually; salmon and poached eggs. A large flock (or gaggle? giggle? What is the plural for partying Australians?) of about 50 ppl in day-glo green n orange just went by on their way to Church -'G'day, mate' ...

I don't think it's a 'gaggle'... But here's some suggestions for gaggle-based collective nouns:
  • A G'daygle of Australians
  • A Gargoyle of Goths;
  • A Google of Geeks;
  • A Gurgle of Plumbers...
It's possible that some of what I say is accurate. But don't bet on it.

That'd be a 'giggle' of Australians, then -at any rate it'd be more fitting with this particular sub-set of them :)

A drunk of Australians.

On a more serious not, possibly a mob of australians? Mob is used for kangaroos and sheep in Australia and the Aboriginals tend to use the term "your mob" referring to white Australians and I think mob to themselves as a group in loose terms.

Point. But 'mob' can have elsewhere a sort of threatening undertone and there was nothing threatening about these big burly Aussies (well, the men) in tutus and day-glo pink leggings. Bizarre, perhaps, but not threatening or unfriendly. Watching parade by all these super-heroes, nurses, lady-birds, nuns, boy-scouts, prisoners in stripey uniforms. It's quite a sight taking place every Sunday here in KTR. No amount of money would persuade me to go in their club but in some way it is a reassuring sight, for some reason.

Ooh, I like them all. A G;daygle is good but I still think a Giggle of these particular sub-set of Australians is about right...
