    What do you call ......

    ..... the plural of the mouse you use on a computer?

    Is it mouses or mice?

    Just after spending all Easter at the rink doing judging and setting up the computers for our IJS, I was just wondering.

    Either that or I am going mad.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    At our shop, we use "mice" as in "I need 6 mice for the conference room." If I said "mouses", folks would laugh. I'm in New England.

    Yup. No matter what the plural is supposed to be, in real life around here it's "mice". If I were to call it "mouses", people would think I was being deliberately odd.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    I totally thought this was going to be a joke thread! What do you call it when...

    I'd say mice, too.
