The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.

Herd of cows

We are all familiar with a Herd of cows,

Flock of chickens

a Flock of chickens,

School of fish

a School of fish

Gaggle of geese

and a Gaggle of geese.

However, less widely known is:

Pride of lions

Pride of lions

Murder of crows

a Murder of crows

Exaltation of doves

an Exaltation of doves
and, presumably because they look so wise:

Parliament of owls

a Parliament of owls.

Congress of baboons

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!
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Look it up!!!!!!
