Collective nouns for professions

I think this has been done before but have any new collective nouns for professions, especially new professions, been coined lately? Here are some I made earlier at home:

a BRACE BRACE BRACE of pilots

a grumble of farmers

a define integer of IT professionals

a menu of website designers

a hive of call centre hosts

a sackful of lower division football team managers

an eggbox of SLF
