Anyone?
Is the plural of Moose 'moose'?
I heard that you can't pee outside in Siberia because the moose try to drink your urine. Can anyone go out and check this for me? (actually it might have been elk or something, but how am I supposed to tell the difference?)

I'm totally moose-free

The plural of Moose is Meese .
I think that the Moose's name is Brenda. Paul TELLS us that that is his wifes name - but I have never seen any proof that such a person exists, so until then it is my opinion that he is really talking about the Moose .

Sort of like the plural of pants is pants and ditto scissors. If you were creating the English language, what would you choose for the plural of moose?

Mooseplex? Moosetuple? Moosen?
So now wait a minute on pants and scissors. When you get a stain on your pants below the thigh, is it on a pant leg or a pants leg? According is soccer, is it aerial kick technique called a scissor kick or a scissors kick?
What if I have developed various forms of exotic sugar and I want to sell a sampler to my eager gift-giving customers? Do I call it "Fine sugar of the world" or "Fine sugars of the world?"
This is vexing.

Disturbing.
If the pants/scissors dillema is caused by their implied 2-ness (2 legs, 2 bits that make up the scissors), then what do you have if you have half of a broken pair of scissors? And why a 'pair' damnit?
Half of that is like the sound of one hand clapping.

Is the virility of a moose defind by the size and reflective properties of its antlers? (ie how much they match, not their blinding properties in the sun)

I'm not sure about the reflective properties but most female moose will tell you that size definitely matters.

Like the peacock's tail.
It says: Hey babe, look how I healthy I am. Why don't you come around my place and let me provide for you?

Scissors -- for plenty of us the singular isn't "pair of scissors" but just plain "scissors." As in "Do you have a scissors?" (Yep, I can pull it off.)
My grandmother, who did a lot of sewing, used to open and close her mouth in synch with the scissors when cutting fabric. This greatly amused all the grandchildren.
Moosemeat -- Yeah, I've eaten it several times. Tastes like venison, but not so rank.

Hope someone doesn't mistake your artistic view of the kids running naked through the north 40 as child porn.

Moise, Mise (pronounced mIz), Moosah
Here's something that's always vexed me: Is it propah to say "The only ones I know are in Hyderabad"?

Personally I'd just go with "do you have scissors"?
Mooseplex? Moosetuple? Moosen?
Moosen was my first thought for this one. Or perhaps that should be möosen or of course møøsen.

Sure, how much do you want -- a pound, half pound?
