Poll #790220 PLURALS

What's the cooler plural of "mongoose"?

Mongooses!
1(10.0%)
Mongeese!
9(90.0%)

What SHOULD be the plural of "metropolis"?

metropoli
6(60.0%)
metropolises
3(30.0%)
metropoleis
1(10.0%)


For the record, either is acceptable for "mongoose", and the dictionary lists "metropolises" as the plural of "metropolis", but that is WRONG because the plural of "polis" is "poleis" so the plural of "metropolis" shold be "metropoleis" and I AM RIGHT, THE DICTIONARY IS WRONG. SOMEBODY AGREE WITH ME.
