Continuing the discussion from Thousands of worms found in neat piles on road:

I was digging in the garden when I unearthed an unusually large clump of worms. I thought, “hey that’s good” and replaced the soil I had removed.
I’m sooooo dull.
It wasn’t so bad when the worms still slithered. No, you hardly noticed them then, really. But once they began to develop the legs…then the feet…then the tiny boots…then the marching, oh, the marching! It was enough to drive one crazy. All day. Round and round the house. The noise! The clump, clump, clump of worms became unceasing…

“Oh, look at that clump of worms!” she cried out.
Her companion, with raised eyebrows, said “I believe the term you’re looking for might be a ‘clew’ of worms or a ‘clat’ of worms.”

The city slicker said ‘Oh, look at that bunch of cows!’ And the farmer said ‘Not bunch, herd.’ And the city slicker said ‘Heard of cows? Of course I’ve heard of cows!’ And the farmer said ‘No, no, I mean the cow herd.’ And the city slicker said ‘Oh, that’s okay, I don’t have any secrets!’”
Her companion sniffed “When you were ‘kids’? What were you and your siblings, a bunch of baby goats?”
She sighed, then winked and said “I think you mean a ‘herd’ of baby goats, don’t you, dear? And, I like ‘clump of worms’, so there, it’s a good phrase and I’m going to start using it!”
