(read to the end, you wont be dissappointed)
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic
collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a
a flock of chickens,
a school of fish
and a gaggle of geese.
Perhaps less widely known is:
a pride of lions,
a murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens),
an exaltation of doves and,
presumably because they look so wise:
a parliament of owls.
They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and sex-perverted of all primates.
And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?
Believe it or not a Congress!
A CONGRESS OF BABOONS!
I guess that pretty much explains the junk that come out of Washington
