Ok, SOMEbody's got to do it. I looked it up. It's been stated here that
it's "another thing coming" because think is not a noun. Webster's
Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary (including their example):

think [n] (1834): an act of thinking <has another ~ coming>

My personal pronunciation faux pas came from reading words but not hearing
them spoken. I used to think that pseudo was pronounced suede-o. Rather
embarrassing thinking back and wondering how many people I accused of being
suede-o intellectuals.
