it's "moose". just like "fish".

I caught A fish, I caught A DOZEN fish.
I shot A moose, I shot SEVERAL moose.

And seriously, if this is how stupid the people at your company are, I will avoid doing business with you. Hiring high school dropouts to publicly represent your company is a bad idea.

@kamikazeken: Actually, if you're referring to many different species of fish, it's okay to use "fishes"

Example: What kind of fishes live in the ocean?

I know that was a bit off topic, but my random knowledge processor was going haywire and would've exploded my brain if I didn't share it with you.

yeah, but everyone hearing you say "fishes" will think you're slow.

I don't think this is really something you can debate.. there's a right answer and a wrong answer.. which can usually be located easily via Google.

Unless you are taking about chocolate mousse, then I am unsure of the plural.

Or an artistic MUSE. Then it's MUSES. That's amusing.

A Møøse once bit my sister...

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink".

I thought miece was the plural of mice. Of course, I also once convinced a van full of high school kids that the plural of elk was elken so maybe I'm not the most trusthworthy source for something like this.

But, seriously, the plural of moose is moose. Confirmed by multiple park rangers, dictionaries and google searches over the years...the question seems to regularly come up at family gatherings. I have no idea why but it does.

I wasn't sure if I needed to bother replying to this but I did.

@captainsuperdawg: "Example: What kind of fishes live in the ocean?"

A minor point perhaps, but it shouldn't it be, "What kinds of fishes live in the ocean?"
