    ..... 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.

    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.

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

    I'd say mice, too.
