I just used the phrase "dorkus malorkus" in conversation but needed to pluralize it. So I wrote "dorkus malorkuses" but then I thought you know, that can't be right.

I mean, "dorkus" is the obvious noun in this. One can be a dorkus and one can be a dorkus malorkus but I don't think anyone outside of Dr. Seuss could've called someone a standalone malorkus. So obviously "malorkus" is the modifier here. And considering the proper plural of "Whopper Jr." is "Whoppers Jr." I am now well and truly stymied so I turn to you, the smart ones.
