THE TRUTH ........ Did You Know

A Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens

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!

I guess that pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington !

You just can't make this stuff up.

Bravo,Katii.  I think you just invented a new game.  Let's call it "What Else Can We Call Them?"  Here's my first offering.

I also renamed the nation's "Capitol Hill"...

Katii wins... for  FEMA.  The end of meaningful assistance. Brilliant. Wish there was a T in there so we could insult them over those Katrina trailers with no electricity.
