Smile A herd of cows, a flock of chickens

It is true - and I think you will laugh (maybe chuckle).
=================================

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. 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!

You can look it up!

I Believe it.

Someone noticed all the east coast happenings and ask if Mother Nature was out to get Obama.. I replied that I did not think so as Obam is highly mobile (Air Force 1 and all that) and can easily get out of dodge as it were.

However Mother Nature is Progressive (IN this case means moves forward in time)

And as you know CON is the opposite of PRO

Therefore the opposite of Progress, must be CONgress

Thus it must be thtat Mother Nature is out to get CONGRESS.

Of course one of the better Eddy Murphy movies (The Distinguished Gentelman) he is playing a con man who dedices to run fro congress.

"What would you call a collection of Con men?" He asks.. and when nobody answers he provides the classic answer: "Congress".

Nuff said.

NOTE: Nothing in this post is political.. Politics have absolutly nothing to do with it,

Everything in the OP is true. It was not political. If it has been misconstrued as being political, just look up each item:

However, there may be some semblance.
