    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 Baboons. They are loud, dangerous, obnoxious, viciously aggressive and the least intelligent of all primates. So, 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 coming out of D.C.
