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.
