    That' already been explained. "Figthing Mongoose" was used in a Futurame episode (with your avatar I thought you'd know), and "Montagoose" is a tribute to "Buzz" who had some trouble pronouncing the word correctly on TGOR. Although one wonders, if he ever had to use the plural form, would it have been "Montageese"?

    Actually for the full explanation you can go to the GM Central Blog world with the link below. Here is a quote that should clear this up

    "...it's actually a cross between a Tim "Buzz" Kilpatrick mispronounciation (Buzz pronounced Mongoose as Montagoose) and a Futurama reference ( Futurama's Philip Fry "...Fighting Mongooses, that's a cool team name...")."
