I love this -- funny enough the question of pluralizing "moose" was just on Cristy the Wordsmith yesterday! Apparently by the time the Algonquin word "moose" was loaned into English the grammar for pluralizing words by changing the middle vowel was long obsolete.

There's a while world of confusing word games one can play with middle vowel pluralizing...

A library is a place with lots of beek.
My soup recipe calls for one large look.

I just sent my wife into a half hour of guffaws with these. I think I have enough dad jokes to keep me for a while.

This seems like a fun place to mention the semi-facetious debate over in Cats Facebook about whether the singular of "peets" (paw feets, so cute!) should be back-constructed to be "peet" (makes sense) or "poot" (also makes sense but sounds like a fart).
