While looking for my password, I found this

Remember, though box
In the plural makes boxes
The plural of ox
Should be oxen, not oxes.
And remember, though fleece
In the plural is fleeces
That the plural of goose
Aren't gooses nor geeces.
And remember, though house
In the plural is houses
The plural of mouse
Should be mice, not mouses.
All of which goes to prove
That grammar a farce is
For where is the plural
Of rum and molasses.
Ohio Farmer, 8(3):23 Jan. 15, 1859
