What is a Congress?

Anthropomorphic Nouns

 

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: It is correct)

A CONGRESS OF BABOONS!

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

You just can’t make this stuff up.
