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.
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 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

A PARLIAMENT OF BABOONS! I guess that pretty much explains the things that come out from the Parliament

You just can’t make this stuff up.
