What is the logic in the saying, "If you think this, you got another THING
coming"? None at all. "If you think this, you've got another THINK coming" is
not only "witty," but makes sense: "Your thought is wrong and you need to
replace it with another thought." My immigrant parents, who did not speak perfect
English, nevertheless always used "think" and always understood it as a clever
and sensible statement.
