You can't make this stuff up . . .

I hope you enjoy the following post that I recently receiver from a friend . . .

We are 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 or larks,

And, presumably because they look so wise:

A Parliament of owls.

Now consider a group of Baboons. Baboons (according to the email I received) 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!


That pretty much explains the things
that come out of Washington!
