From notes of today's Morning Meeting:

6/16 - Bridge fire Cole Street mp 190.65 flock of dead pigeons found under bridge

Is it still a "flock" if they're dead?

pigeons pooping on my head
unless of course, they are all dead

pigeons pooping on my block
dead or alive, they're still a flock

the name's the same, there is no doubt
even when they've all pooped out!

is a family still a family if they are slaughtered in their sleep by a deranged lunatic. think about that.

Indeed. I guess for some reason I didn't think that the pigeons were all hanging out together before they died. Which I suppose they probably were. If they were a flock before, then certainly they're still a flock. But if they all died separately and then fell into a pile, I don't think that's a flock of pigeons. I think that's just a pile of dead birds.

i would have to concur. i mean, say someone slit people's throats as they walked down market street in the city. upon slitting their throats, the perp could then erect a pile of human carnage around jewelers row. those people are not a family. got me....

Yeah, but a FAMILY is a very specific group of people, related to each other. A flock of pigeons, on the other hand, is really just a bunch of random filthy birds.

So, the answer is, if you kill a bunch of people on Market Street and pile their bodies up, they become a flock of corpses.
