Why did he say "mice" after "mouses"? Could you explain this situation?
The reason they say "mice" after he says "mouses" is because they are correcting him, because "mouses" is not the correct plural form of "mouse" when referring to the animal. The correct plural form of "mouse" (the animal) is "mice". "Mouses" is the plural form of a computer "mouse". Ex: There are mice running everywhere! Ex: You can buy mouses for your computer here.
