UNDERSTANDING WASHINGTON

UNDERSTANDING WASHINGTON
POLITICS!
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.

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. 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!
