    The manager of a large city zoo was drafting a letter to order a
    pair of animals. He sat at his computer and typed the following
    sentence: "I would like to place an order for two mongooses, to
    be delivered at your earliest convenience."

    He stared at the screen, focusing on that odd word
    mongooses. Then he deleted the word and added another, so
    that the sentence now read: "I would like to place an order for
    two mongeese, to be delivered at your earliest convenience."

    Again he stared at the screen, this time focusing on the new
    word, which seemed just as odd as the original one. Finally, he
    deleted the whole sentence and started all over. "Everyone
    knows no full-stocked zoo should be without a mongoose," he
    typed. "Please send us two of them."
