Congress of Baboons

A Congress of Baboons
The Real Congress of Baboons
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for groups of animals!

There is a Pride of lions;

a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens);

a School of fish; an Exaltation of larks and a Parliament of owls.

Now consider the baboon: loudest, most dangerous and viciously aggressive of all primates.

It is ironic and so appropriate that the proper collective noun for a group of baboons is: a Congress.

There's also the term "sexual congress" for what they're doing to the country.
