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 !
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Go green – Recycle Congress in 2012!!!
