So now I'm sharing with you.
I have been away but have not forgotten my family here on DDD, just sitting back for a bit is all.
Here is waht I have for you today.

Thank you to a friend, just too honestly funny,


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 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.
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!
(Note: I hadn't heard that before, so I looked it up. It is correct)


A CONGRESS OF BABOONS!


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

Missed you of late, Rick152. Just for fun I popped into google search to try to find a photo to respond showing a congress of baboons. Much to my surprise I found this article. I thought it was witty, and hope folks might enjoy it. In no way do I mean it as a criticism of you.

A Congress of Baboons?


Posted: Jan. 8, 2012 | 2:14 a.m.

There comes a time when a nation must stand up and say, "Enough is enough. No more degrading political slurs."

Yes, there is such a thing as a pride of lions and a parliament of owls.

But there is absolutely, categorically no such thing as a "congress" of baboons.

We know this because the website Politifact did the research and found that while a group of baboons can sometimes be called a rumpus, the more accepted term of venery is a troop.

A joke email started it all when the anonymous writer asserted that "congress" is not only the right term for a gathering of baboons, it by extension explains quite a lot about Congress. (Nudge-nudge, wink-wink.)

Politifact smelled a plague of rats. So an essay of journalists there delved into this most important political language issue.

Setting the record straight no doubt came much to the relief of baboons everywhere.

Unlike baboons, the reputation of Congress has never been held in lower regard. At the end of last year, Gallup polled the approval rating for Congress at 11 percent.

Think about it -- 11 percent! Public support for legalized marijuana would poll better than 11 percent. Heck, public support for legalized heroin would do better than that.

Besides, what did baboons do to merit comparison to the U.S. Congress?

When baboons gather, they do so for a purpose and actually get things done. Baboon leaders lead the troop to food, water and the pursuit of baboon happiness.

Can Congress do that? Not lately.

Most days last year, Congress did nothing but sit on its collective haunches. And when it actually did something, it made matters worse and the people far less happy.

The House passes bills the Senate won't move on. And the Senate passes bills that the House won't move on. This is normal "activity" for Congress.

House Speaker John Boehner can't control the more conservative part of his majority. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can't control his own tongue, thus making the men the least effective partnership for the reputation of Congress since Anthony Weiner bought a BlackBerry.

The do-nothing Congress created a supercommittee to do something. It did super nothing. Budgets and other big issues get kicked down the road, 60 days at a time. It's no way to run a country.

It's time for good people to do the right thing and just say no to tarnishing the image of baboons. Baboons are not U.S. senators and representatives. For the sake of future generations of baboons, let's put an end to this unfair linkage.

If we don't, the damage could be immeasurable to baboon culture. For example:

-- An adolescent baboon asks out the good-looking babe-oon in the next tree, only to be taunted as having the social graces and personality of Harry Reid. Would his self-esteem ever recover?

-- A baboon harem harrumphs about their male's flirtatious behavior at the troop holiday party. They tell him they won't be "John Ensigned."

-- Overheard at the morning baboon head-scratching session: "Did you hear about the facial work she had done? It was a disaster." "Was it a Nancy Pelosi disaster or a Shelley Berkley disaster?"

"Way worse than Shelley. It was Joe Biden grotesque. She's going to sue the doctor's ischial callosities off."

So let's get it straight. It's a troop of baboons, a rhumba of rattlesnakes, a bed of oysters, a bloat of hippopotami and a murder of crows. A gathering of congresscritters is a congress.

The other animals don't want to trade.

The author is correct however to compare congress to a bunch of baboons IS an insult to the baboons. Perhaps we should apologize to them.
