If a goose is a geese shouldn't a moose be a meese?

Asked by tranquilsea (17760points) April 4th, 2012

If a singular goose is a goose and multiple ones are geese why wouldn’t multiple moose be meese?

I’m going to launch a campaign to change this :-P

feeling slightly silly right now

What do you call it when you have more than one mouse for a computer….? I was wondering about this the other day. There are a ton in the back at work and I want to put them all in one box and store them….but how do I convey this to my coworkers? “I’m putting all the computer mouses/mice/meeses in a box”?

I’d call them computer mice.
