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!


I guess that pretty much explains the things that
come out of Washington!

Wait, now that's an idea, fire all of congress and replace them with monkeys. That might actually be better. :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:
