Fun Facts Singled Out

1) What is the singular of clothing? Nothing! There isn’t one! So never try to put on one clo!

2) What is the singular of cattle? Nothing! (Your cow does not wish to be called a cat!)

3) The plural of mouse is mice right? Not when it’s your computer mouse! The plural in that case would be mouses.

4) Do you prefer one fish in your tank? Many fish in your tank? Many fishes in your tank? They are all correct so have your pick, but pick nice fishes please.

5) The plural of man is men. The plural of woman is women. So the plural of human is? Humans! Strange but true.
