Funny thing, I always thought the word was plural not plutral. Maybe we both need to learn English better.
A joke was it? Maybe a smilie would be a good idea.

IMO its lame to use 'viri', lamer still to claim its a joke.....After all, its not correct in either latin or english. Sure, people can claim 'common use' etc. but surely u can c where that can go m8.

Been away on holiday visiting family so didn't reply earlier. At no stage did I claim I used it as a joke, I gave a dictionary definition that said it is used jocularly just like you gave a link to something that said it was incorrect spelling. The real funny thing is you picked at spelling when you couldn't spell plural. (there's your smile)
