        Now we know!!!!!!

        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!
        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.
