A man writes a request letter to order two geese:

“I would like to order two gooses.”

He pauses, notices something awkward about his draft, and rewrites:

“I would like to order two geeses.”

Still not confident about the correctness of his letter, he writes again:

“Dear sir, I would like to order 1 goose. Thank you very much.”

“P.S. Please add 1 more goose. Thanks.”

  One Response to “Ordering Geese”

  1. Sir, I would like to correct on the grammar, Shouldn’t “Dear sir, I would to order 1 goose” be like, “Dear sir, I would like to order 1 goose”? Thanks. Nico Sagun
