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 !
