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!
I guess that pretty much explains the things that come out of the ANC (African National CONGRESS) !!!
