This reminds me of the old joke:

A zookeeper was writing a letter requesting some new animals 
for the zoo's new exhibit. He was having trouble, however,
pluralizing 'mongoose'. 

    "Dear Sirs;
        Please send me two mongeese.."
Nah. That doesn't sound right..

    "Dear Sirs;
        Please send me two mongooses.."

After several attempts to solve his problem, he finally wrote the following:

    "Dear Sirs;
        Please send me a mongoose for our new exhibit. And while
    you're at it, send me another one."

And now back to our regularly scheduled program..
