Bringing Neighbors Together

What do they call this group?

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, 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!

A CONGRESS OF BABOONS! I guess that pretty much explains it all!
