Is there a Moose loose in the hoose?
Or should that be Mooses or Moosi if there is more than one?

Shoon is a great word though, I have to admit.

The teech is right, in computer jargon, the plural of mouse is mouses. I can't find a reference just now, though.
Just like in engineering, the plural of antenna is antennas, but in biology it's antennae. Engineers are using English, but Biologists are using Latin.

I've heard mouses before as the plural.
Good old wiki seems to think either will do

Ask him the past tense of the verb "to highlight" as well; I have found that English staff tend to say "highlit" while everyone else opts for "highlighted"...

Whatever gender, they have far too much time on their hands if they can be worrying about what pluralisation the IT dept use for pointing instruments...
