A herd of cows - a flock of chickens
#1
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.

We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of
fish and a Gaggle of geese.

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. 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 !

You can look it up!

It is now becoming perfectly clear. .. .

Seeing as how Obummer has just departed our shores for Asia, and taken our leader with him, I just can't, get over the coincidence how correct those ditty's are.

Whatever country you live in.
