    Here is your trivia lesson for the day.

    Here is your trivia lesson for the day.

    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 achool 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!

    That pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington !
    You just can’t make this stuff up.
