Question that has plagued mankind for over a decade...

Post by VikingBoyBilly »

What ARE the animaniacs? Are they dogs, or cats, or some kind of mutant bears?

Ah, I remember that cartoon. When I was much younger I saw a few episodes on tv. I didn't like it much, they were too restless to my taste. They remind me a bit of Goofy -- and I have no idea about him either. I'd say some kind of cat dogs. :dopekeen

Didn't you pay attention to the cartoon?

"Were the Animaniacs!" They purposely avoided defining what they were.

Are you joking CK Guy? I've never heard of oxen or boxen. :confused (And don't people just say boxes, whether it's correct or not?)

You didn't follow your own logic in establishing that conclusion. If Ox is to Oxen as Box is to Boxen then Goose is to Geese as Moose is to Meese. Your logic would stand if Goose was to Goosen as Moose is to Moosen.</Dr Seuss>

This reminds me of a somewhat recent revelation I had--that to plural mice does not stand for the computer mouse, as the practice is only relevant to animals, but instead mouses is the correct term to use. Though I'm still not entirely convinced my mouse is not alive.

But we all know English really has no rules anyway, so it doesn't matter that much.

*sigh* That was kind of the point, I know I wasn't following my own logic. Not sure if you're joking here.
