The Monday Moose

You know what your Monday needs this week?

A MOOSE.


Why, no, now that you mention it, I didn't write a blog post yesterday and schedule it to go up today. Give me a break. It was Mother's Day. I busy eating chocolate truffles ...



... drinking a Blanhattan (a Manhattan made with my favorite single barrel bourbon) ...



...AND dreaming up interesting desserts to be made with this:


I mean, come on ... alcohol-infused whipped cream? And it's chocolate? Wheeee....!

Hmm ... maybe a topping for a nice chocolate moose. ;)

Hope you had a great weekend!

Oh, wait. The question.

Um, what is the best plural for moose?

A. moose

B. mooses

C. meese

D. I never talk about more than one, anyway, so I don't care.

Meeses, I think, is the one most used by Bugs Bunny, so I'll go with that.

And I've tried that whipped cream. Yum!

Happy day-after-Mother's-Day!

I'm with KatieO, I was thinking meeses too! Lol, and I for one, *love* the Monday moose! :)

Delia said...

And...uh...where can I get that whipped cream again? Because I have a lovely hot beverage here that could use some sprucing up.

Oh, and I usually go with moosen.

Actually, the plural of moose is moose. (When you help grandkids with their homework, you pick up this stuff.)

Kimberly Sabatini said...

Meeses or maybe moosies? *grin*

Michele Shaw said...

I'd have to go with D, but I'm more interested in coming over to your house for cocktails and dessert!

If I ever came upon one of those scary dudes, I'd haul buns so fast I'd never see his pals so I don't need to know the plural form. :)

Plural for moose - yes, it's moose, but I like "those big a$$ deer" myself.

And wow, that whipped cream, what will they think of next. In chocolate even.

Phooey on the mooses... alcohol-infused chocolate whipped cream??? Oh my God, eat that stuff right out of the can! (Sounds as good as the vodka-filled chocolates I got from the Polish grocery store... yeah, a real honest-to-goodness mouthful of vodka inside each delectable piece of chocolate!)

There's a scene in one of Rachel Gibson's books involving eating whipped cream off the heroines nipples...

My answer would have to be D on the moose question.

Ha, ha -- coincidentally, I recently did a lesson on using singulars and plurals in a report comparing two animals. I reminded students to be sure to make the subject and verb agree, and to be consistent throughout the report. Then one student asked what he was supposed to do, since his report was on elk and moose. TWO animals with identical singular and plural forms. The rest of the student thought he had it easier than the rest of them!

Now that's what I call inspired Mothers' Day behaviour.

By the way, the plural you're all looking for is actually mooseketeers.

I'm still struggling with the plural of platypus. So I haven't bothered too much about northern hemisphere beasties!
