I would go with "a shush of librarians".  This is from the old days when libraries were deadly quiet and anyone who made a noise could expect a "shush!" and an angry look from the nearest librarian.

I would go with "an exaggeration of salesmen".  This is borrowed from the classic joke with the punch-line: "Oh, you know how those [IBM] salesmen always exaggerate."

Thanks!  I'm glad there are others who feel the same way about BGAs.

How about:

A swindling of salesmen (especially those of used cars!)

a bevy of beauty therapists

a galaxy of astronomers

a sparkling of jewellers

A coat of painters

a ring of jewellers

a shelf of grocers

a hirsuteness of barbers

a hearing of audiologists

A refraction of opticians

an array of programmers

a classification of librarians

an attribution of authors

a reference of technical writers

and last but not least
A competence of engineers
You could maybe use "excellence" as well - it has better alliteration but doesn't have the same ring to it...

@Max: "Betajet also told us that "horripilation" is another name for goose bumps or goose flesh, but he didn't take this any further."



Actually his suggestion was in his subject line: "A Horripilation of Ball Grid Arrays"

Which I would agree with!

I was going to suggest a sheet of musicians, but none of them are playing anything (one hopes :-)  and a sheet of singers does not have the same ring to it (even though it alliterates better)...

My vote would go to Garcia's: "an entanglement of quantum physicists"

Here's two that may have been directed toward me over the years:

A clumsy of geeks

A nnoying of nerds
