Ruled by Baboons

 
 It's September...and spring in the Land of Oz.
 
 
 
 
 You gotta laugh...it makes your day.
Got this in an email:
We are all familiar with 
a Herd of cows, 
a Flock of chickens, 
a School of  fish    
and a Gaggle of geese.  

A Pride of lions, 
a Murder of crows.
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  ........ They are called a Congress!  

I  guess that pretty much explains the things that come out  of    Washington and Canberra (Oz)!!
 
 
Am I being mean... ?

  1. Look at that I did not know.
    I learned a laugh.

  2. I think that pretty much says it all...(at least for Washington, I can't speak for Canberry.)

    I had heard a murder of crows (and believe me listening to a group f them can be murderous. Nothing else likes to crow about themselves as much as a crow.) Anyway, I had not heard about a congress of baboons.

    Thanks for the laugh - a good way to begin my day!

    Blessings,
    Joan

  6. Food for thought! Probably in the days when they came up with the expression, they also had a congress.

  7. Crystal, this is just hilarious! Your post was so unique and informative. I never hear that a group of crows was called a murder! That's terrible... but a congress of baboons... now that is really funny (and fitting?!)

    Your post made my day.

    Love

  11. Hello!
    I'm Denise, from Brazil and I have followed your blog with my blog Daughters of Sarah, remember?
    I invite you to access another blog, which is my family.
    We have been together as a family to win all our families to Christ. So we want to encourage with this blog, that all Christians do the same.
    Be part of this army of warriors who are willing to live the gospel, pray and talk about Jesus, His Word and His kingdom to all families. Our families and our brothers around the world need to know and surrender to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    "For the love of Christ constrains us."
    Together we are better and stronger and the world know that we are the Lord if we love each other.
    In Jesus, peace!
