"Hoo" said what?

she discovered recently that
a group of owls is called a 'parliament'

and it made her giggle to imagine
a bunch of wigged owls sitting around a chamber,
drinking tea and civilly debating
the number of licks it takes
to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop.

according to mr. owl, a member of the house of commons,
it is "a three."
