(好像还是中文精简:“群”!)


I found this educational, I hope you agree.. We are all familiar with a

Herd of cows,

2.jpg

A Flock of chickens,

3.jpg

A School of fish

4.jpg

And a Gaggle of geese.

However, less widely known is:

5.jpg


A Pride of lions,

6.jpg

A Murder of crows

7.jpg

(as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens),

8.jpg

An Exaltation of  doves

And, presumably because they look so wise:

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?

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