We are all familiar with a
Herd of cows,
Flock of chickens,
School of fish
And 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.
Baboons 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)
Google “Congress of baboons” and see for yourself!
A CONGRESS OF BABOONS!
That pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington!
You just can’t make this stuff up.
