Reminds me of the day when I saw two deers and two mooses meet up with three sheeps at the edge of the pond and all together watch the fishes in the water undecided.gif

Three sheep.  I believe sheep is both singular and plural.

Sorry, but I will never consider “jon and me went to the dark site” as acceptable over “jon and I went to the dark site”. Just seems uneducated.

By that reasoning, the singular form of the word should be binoculus.

I'm down with that.
