Pride of lions, pack of wolves, flock of seagulls...

...crew of pirates, clan of ninjas, but what do you call a whole lot of zombies?

Hmmm...

A "dead."

"Yeah, we ran into a whole dead of zombies last night, but the 870s were cooking and all was right."

veri: mandew Nope, ain't even going there.

Matt G said...

I've always used "horde."
Regardless of how many zombies you have, multiple zombies = horde.

Anonymous said...

We call them a "congress of zombies".

GeorgeH said...

A stink of zombies?

Rustmeister said...

A "murder" of zombies. Or maybe a "muster"....

Tam said...

No, no, a "murder" is crows and a "muster" is chubby guys in camo with SKSs.

Cybrludite said...

A mob of zombies. A horde implies some degree of organization.

John said...

I should think a horde would be a fine collective noun. A mess of zombies also seems apropos, though perhaps a crypt would work if you want something more goth-sounding.

John said...

Wait! A morgue of zombies!

Jason said...

An "opportunity" of zombies, as in "targets of opportunity" or "an opportunity to improve my marksmanship through constant immediate practice."

OrangeNeckInNY said...

"Croak of zombies"
"Bog of zombies"
"Quagmire of zombies"
"Brick of zombies" - because it'll take a brick of ammo to take them down.
"ZOMG of Zombies"

OA said...

One fights a shamble of zombies.

Matthew said...

A "lurch".

Just like a group of mummies is a "stagger".

Another vote for "congress".

Uncle wins the internets!

Anonymous said...

I always thought they came in cemeterys; ergo a cemetery of zombies. but the others are good also, a shuffle, a stagger, a lurch, or even a thriller. All good.

Mulligan said...

dunno what to call 'em, but here's a t-shirt for it.

How 'bout a Crypt of Zombies

tanksoldier said...

Two more for your list:

A "confusion" of blonds.

A "congress" of fools.

tanksoldier said...

PS:

Yeah, I vote for a "thriller" of zombies, too.

Bruce said...

A (shooting) gallery of zombies.

DirtCrashr said...

A committee?

A Tide of Zombies

Don T. said...

I call them a slough of zombies. Descriptive, eh?

William the Coroner said...

Shamble. Has to be shamble.

Tony said...

A "congress" is what one calls a group of politicians in the USA. Elsewhere in the world it is naturally a parliament of politicians.

As for zombies, if you follow Tam's link you'll note that someone mentioned the term "an infestation of zombies". Very hard to argue against that. An infestation it is then.

Christina LMT said...

A putrescence of zombies.

A pestilence of zombies (though someone else mentioned a plague already).

A pong of zombies.

A reek of zombies.

A stench of zombies.

A mess of zombies.

I can think of nothing more.

Tam said...

Heh.

A funk of zombies.

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure they vote in Chicago.

Farmer Frank said...

I'm sure if it were REAL, they would be described as a "sh!tload" of zombies.

Tom The Impaler said...

"a rot of zombies."

Only if you're Scooby Doo!

I like the terms shamble or shuffle

Bob said...

Another vote for Shamble.

Matt G said...

So far, I'm liking "Shamble" and "Funk," best, leaning toward shamble.

Brigid said...

A zeme of zombies?

DaveP. said...

Munch. A munch of zombies.

A "bureaucracy" of Zombies, because after you slash back the red tape, it all comes back to life again.

In a fit of insanity, I did a photoshop. I really need to get a life ...

mcthag said...

A large group of zombies is a constituency.

OldTexan said...

I think the correct term is a BROKERAGE of Zombies.

Mike W. said...

I always thought of it as a "zaggle" myself. Lame, i know...

A gnash of zombies.

Unless you're PC, democrat or French being eaten by the undead, then:

A "nosh" of zombies is appropriate.

the pawnbroker said...

an "electorate" of course.

or...a "section"
(as in zombie-comment section at vftp...:)

What do you a call a bunch of zombies.

"Targets."

As in " Gentlemen and ladies, Targets at 3 o'clock. Aimed fire only. First rank. Fire!. Second Rank. Fire! Third Rank. Fire! First Rank. Fire! ... Reserve ranks, Right face! Aim. Fire!"

jimbob86 said...

Breda, it is only "A rot of zombies" in Asia......

deadcenter said...

I like "confusion of blondes", that's just funny.

But, everyone knows fools travel in parades.

I'd think that it would be "an apocalypse of zombies" or maybe "a pox of zombies" for those that want to be punny.

Ross said...

What would I call a whole lot of zombies?

A target-rich environment.

And a REAL good excuse to load up all my new-to-me, eeeeeeevil baby-killing preban AR mags.

Word verification: enerstab. I like it.

HerrBGone said...

I like a ‘Congress of Zombies’ it fits right in with my first thought on the subject which was ‘the Incoming Administration’? Constituency and Electorate are also great!

WV: “herses” which I find somehow apropos, in a phonetic sort of way, given the subject matter…

Hmmm… Perhaps a Hearse of Zombies?
