Mice, Lice, Hice

Since the plural of "mouse" is "mice," and the plural of "louse" is "lice," I'm going to start calling more than one house "hice". Here's an example:

Johnny: Hey, Mike, where are you going?
Mike: I'm going back to my house. Where are you going?
Johnny: I'm going to look at some houses. They are supposed to have nice Christmas decorations.
Mike: Oh cool. Why are their Christmas decorations still up? It's June.
Johnny: The decorations aren't up anymore. I just want to look at the houses that will have nice Christmas decorations come wintertime.
Mike: That's odd. Well, have fun looking at the houses. I mean the hice.
Johnny: What?
Mike: The hice!
Johnny: Weirdo.

Notice Johnny used the archaic word "houses" because he is not up on the lingo.
