A first in English

One of the less serious lunchtime suggestions today was that our office's internal waste disposal should be handled by, and I quote, a bevy of trained coypu, who could also handle the shredding.

This is the wonder of English. Both I and the quote's originator will bet good money you have never heard the phrase bevy of trained coypu before, but (assuming you know what a coypu is) you can instantly grasp the sense.

English. Gotta love it.
