fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.

At the Washington Post this week, reporter Christopher Ingraham pondered how the results of a recent poll measuring the popularity of several fictional characters from the Star Wars saga stand up against the ratings received by politicians considered to be likely contenders during the 2016 presidential race, as well as current commander-in-chief Barack Obama, the US Congress and a handful of other top dogs within Washington’s elite.

He will bring balance to the House.
