On plurals

From Jason Kottke:
Me: Yeah, it's like the plural of attorney general is attorneys general.
J: Attorneys general? I thought there was only one attorney general.
Me: Well, one for each state, and if they all go to a meeting or something...
M: Like, "all the attorneys general get together for the annual attorney general-a-thon."
Me: Shouldn't that be attorney-a-thon general?

Related: Engadget checked with Apple PR to see if it's iPod shuffles or iPods shuffle. They said the former...I think it should be the latter.

Well, it's Ford Mustangs not Fords Mustang, isn't it?

I don't see the parallel on "Ford Mustangs." My favorite is the Onion's "Whoppers Junior."
