“A Congress of Baboons”

Don’t quote me, but read this:

“The English language features an anthropomorphic collection of nouns for the various groups of animals. We call a bunch of cows a “herd.” We call a group of geese a “gaggle.” We call a bunch of fish a “school.” We call a group of sheep a “flock.”

However, less widely known is a “pride” of lions, a “murder” of crows, an “exaltation” of doves and, because they look so wise, a “parliament” of owls.

Finally, let’s consider a group of baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates. What is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons? Answer: a congress!

Now you understand why our country continues its descent into the abyss of a failing civilization.”

This was excerpted from “http://rense.com/general94/congff.htm”.  I post it because it so suits some Senators and Reps in Nigeria, at both the national and state levels.

Hey, I'll like to hear from you - drop a line :)
