Title: E-Mail Entertainment
Post by: walkstall on August 26, 2011, 03:28:13 PM
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.
