    Anthropomorphic Nouns

    I thought this might be boring, but stick with it. You'll love the ending.
    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.

    Baboons 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!

    (Note: I hadn't heard that before, so I looked it up. It is correct)

    That pretty much explains the things that

    come out of Washington !

    You just can't make this stuff up.
