What is a Parliament ? From pvvg swamy

June 2, 2014
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic
collective nouns for the various groups of animals. All actually so apt..especially the last one!
We are all familiar with a
Herd of cows,
Flock of chickens,
School of fish
And a Gaggle of geese, and

A Pride of lions.

However, less widely known is:
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 Congress 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 Parliament


Pretty much explains everything doesn’t it?
