Subject: Re: blue laws, monkeys

Can anyone tell me (a) why blue laws are blue, and (b) what you call a

group of monkeys (besides a barrel)?

The "blue" in "blue laws" has something to do with blue paper. The laws

were first written on blue paper? I'm not sure about monkey groups but

can probably find out from a primatologist active on Words-L.

Are you going to tell us what you're doing that involves blue laws and

groups of monkeys??
