The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals. We're 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 loud, obnoxious, 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! That pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington.
