We are all familiar with a
herd of cows,
a flock of chickens,
a school of fish,
a gaggle of geese.
However, 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.
Now consider a group of Baboons.
They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and
least intelligent of all primates.
And what is the proper collective noun
for a group of baboons?
Believe it or not... A Congress!
(Note: I hadn't heard that before, so I looked it up. It is correct)
A CONGRESS OF BABOONS! I guess that pretty much explains
the things that come out of Washington!
You just can't make this stuff up.
