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!

If I was a baboon, I'd take offence to that remark :lash: :ROFL::leprechaun:
