Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

If the plural of goose
Is geese
Should more than one moose
Be meese?

In our neck of the woods (which is really just in our house) the plural of moose is mooses.

Betsy said...

And isn't many mouses called meeses? LOL

Jeff B said...

And why aren't limes called greens or lemons called yellows if oranges are orange?

quilly said...

David is running low on wit
To offer up this moldy bit.
Goose - geese,
Moose - meese,
A child could answer that query,
Even so, I do admit, that English can be scary.

Do you know why people throw so many fits? Because they never come in the correct size.

Raven said...

Ok, I know this isn't very good, but

If a man gooses a woman more than one time does that make him a geeser?

Thanks for visiting Raven's Nest.

Rachel said...

I have thought that many times.

I also love what jeff b said :-)

Kathryn said...

Hahaha!!! I love this one.

Charles Gramlich said...

The real question is can you eat them and how do they taste?

Cuckoo said...

Ha Ha Ha.... typical me !!

And I am with Jeff B.

An off track- My young cousin bro used to say "Good, gooder, goodest"

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Maybe! But I known that more than one mouse are meeses! So says Mr. Jinx of cartoon fame.

Maggie May said...

We have a strange tongue
So much of its wrong!
If gooses are geese
But mooses aren't meese,
Mouses are mice
Houses not hice!
What do we do with more than one rat?
More than one puss cat or more than one bat?
It just don't make sense to put on an ess!
The English word endings, are any one's guess!

Trixie said...

No silly, meese is plural for mouse. EVERYBODY knows that! ;P

I know nothing about animals
And I'm not Doctor Suess
But the one thing I know
Is you should not goose a moose.

willow said...

Of course.

What cartoon character was it that used to say, "I hate meeses to pieces."? I forget.

BeachysCapeCodCupboard said...

Hmmm... and since baby geese are "goslings", should there also be "moslings"?

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

If you "choose" more than once,
Is it 'cheese'?

As Austin Power's 'fazha' said, "easy peasy lemon squeezy"

I think that's my final answer to your query!

Sandi McBride said...

Ahh I see what you meant...and I still love meeses to pieces!
