Default Just thought this was funny

The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a



Herd of cows,



a Flock of chickens,



a 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.
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!




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.
