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! (NOTE: while not explicitly stated the proper name is probably a "Congress of Demonrats") (Note: I hadn’t heard that before, so I looked it up. It is correct!) 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.
