Hi, I was just talking with a UGA student who said there are several words used for group of baboons including congress. He said tribe, troop, congress, and the trend now is to say flange of baboons. So you might retract if you don't seek more input.


"It's a whoop,Professor,a whoop of gorillas. It's a phalange of baboons."



Important fact - Politifact is liberal democrat organization. So, of course they don't want a group of baboons to be congress. But, it is still an accurate definition regardless of what they say.
