Moose, Mouse, Mousse

I know that the english language is screwed up, but this one hit me this morning when I was getting ready for work.

Why when you have mouse, with one s, it is pronounced mous, yet when you add the second s it changes to moos, like moose. Hmmm...makes sense to me. Hey at lease we are consistent, to a point. Souse is pronounced sous, and Sousse, is pronounce Soos. Souse is to immerse in water, or slang for drunk, and Sousse is a city in Tunisia on the Med coast I believe but don't quote me. I think maybe this came from Jeopardy. Anyway now you have something to ponder.

Yours Truly,
