Collective Collectives

So you have a gaggle of geese? What happens if you have many gaggles? My friend Gally and I were discussing this during a recent trip to the beach. Gally decided the answer was the ‘collective collective’.

As such, you can have a goggle of gaggles…
A crow -> a murder of crows -> a massacre of Murders…
An emu -> a mob of emus -> a riot…

If I have one James, a group of Jameses and then many groups…Do I, by extension, have a Jamiplex of Jameses?

Also, what is the collective of ‘delicacy’? Is it a Delicatessen?
