comment What is the plural of Prius?
Dictionaries tend not to agree on octopi. I'll give you that. Merriam-Webster indicates plural oc·to·pus·es or oc·to·pi - merriam-webster.com/dictionary/octopus The online oxford English dictionary counters with this: The standard plural in English of octopus is octopuses. However , the word octopus comes from Greek, and the Greek plural form octopodes is still occasionally used . The plural form octopi is mistakenly formed according to rules for Latin plurals, and is therefore incorrect. I'm with Webster on this one, but there is room for disagreement.

If not using the collective "our", this seems like the best usage, though you could also say "the house that my wife and I own is awesome".
