Pride of lions, pod of whales, murder of crows - what would you all suggest to be a good term for a number of ukuleles "living together"?:D :D :D

Maybe just a uke of ukuleles?

A "Spruik of Ukes" (pronounced 'sprook'; it's Aussie slang) http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spruik :)

That fits very nicely with UAS, which is how there came to be more than two ukes in the first place!

A Bankruptcy
A Divorce
Or, if they all happen to be particularly sweet, handmade, Hawaiian Ukes - A Kollection

I keep saying we should setup a account like "HMS Auto repair and service" so husbands can charge their ukes and the wife will never know! LOL " Oh honey my car broke down on the way home and I had to get it towed and the alternator replaced..." Oy yes ladies "HMS Boutique and Spa"

Not to hijack my own thread - but when I was in college I worked in a corner drugstore that had house charge accounts. All the time people would charge things like cigarettes or cigars or perfume and ask me to write "notebook paper" or "cough syrup" on the charge slip.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread - where were we? Oh yes, bankruptcy and divorce.

I do like ukuli... funny.

I had been calling mine a family, until I changed it to tribe.

Keep 'em coming!

Isn't the answer obvious? I'm surprised nobody's proposed it yet, so let me be the first.
The proper noun to use here is: An Aloha of ukuleles!

The proper term is a murder of crows.....
Based on my present abilities...... a murder of ukuleles.
I am hoping to rise to the level of simple assault.

No worries. :) That thread was before you even joined here, just thought you might like to see some previous responses.

I figure Spruik is perfect... To promote a thing or idea to another person, in order that they buy the thing, or accept the idea

A "Spruik of Ukes" (pronounced 'sprook'; it's Aussie slang) http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spruik :)

Would be nice to see journalists reporting on world record attempts for the largest number of players strumming together to use the word 'ohana.

I've always thought of an ukulele by itself as a Pick. When found in a group of three or more (often times some are twins if you find four or more together), they are a chord.
