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 !
