Had this thrown at me on FB. Thing is surely has to be 'have'. Its collective as in 'they'. They have.

Re: KFC has no chicken
If you're being careful, you use a singular verb with a collective noun when you're stressing its unity, and a plural one when you're stressing its parts.

I'm very often not careful, and use the singular or plural at random.

Do you say "KFC now has chicken" or "KFC now have chicken"?

Re: KFC has no chicken
They have issued a brilliant apology which I saw in the metro today saying WE'RE SORRY. A chicken shop without any chicken. It's not ideal. It goes on to say they are working on it etc. It is a full page ad and I am sure the PC brigade will jump all over them as the main part of the page is a empty KFC bucket with FCK on the side. I thought it was hilarious but no doubt they will get in trouble.

Yeah maybe we just aren't understanding each other.

If we are talking about candy "sweetie" came before "sweet"

"Sweet" as a noun in other contexts came well before that

Isn't a candy drop a sweet?

Not to make it a thing, but you sure?

"Sweetie" meant candy drop before "sweet." (18th century)

But "sweet" was a noun well before that.

(Do you mean "suete" or "swete" an alternate spelling?)
As in:
"He dranc þe sure and i þe suete." He drank the sour and I the sweet - Cursor Mundi circa 1300

Re: KFC has no chicken
[Slightly] interesting that sweetie was the original form of the noun, and sweet is a shortening.

Would've guessed that sweetie had always been the child's version.

No wonder I've never been in a penthouse. I don't even have the right suit for it....

Re: KFC has no chicken
Was that in the penthouse suit or in the private booth at the club?
