A Herd of Cattle, A Flock of Chickens.  The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic (great word, huh?) collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
 
We are all familiar with a Herd of cattle, 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), a Crutch of lobster, 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.

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~
