Seeking a Collective Noun

If it’s “school of fish” and “raft of ducks,”
Then what would the grouping-word be for schmucks?
“A swarm of schmucks” is sweet to say.
To “box of schmucks” I’ll not say nay.
“Cohort” and “legion” have classical rings,
And “chorus” would work, if the schmucks like to sing.
Yet puzzling’s done. It’s time to say fuck it:
I think I’ll be taking my schmucks by the bucket;
For “a bucket of schmucks” is a barrel of laughs,
Almost as good as “a tower of giraffes.”
