chick with dick[edit]

Gtroy created this, then nominated it for speedy deletion as it should be chick with dick. I disagree, for uncountable nouns it is usual to use an article for the singular, and then not for the plural. For example 'we have a dog', 'we have many dogs' (no article in the second).

But isn't it SOP? Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV 03:42, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
If I were going to use a singular of chicks with dicks, I'd write chick with a dick, but google returns over 600,000 hits for both phrases, with or without a. ~ Robin (talk) 04:58, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Are the terms SOP? It's debatable... - -sche (discuss) 05:08, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
But I agree with Robin, I'd interpret "chick with a dick" as the singular and "chicks with dicks" as the plural, and if either entry was kept, I'd want to keep the other entry accordingly. - -sche (discuss) 05:10, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
Being ungrammatical is all the case that chick with dick needs. I'm leaning towards keeping the other as well, since the meaning cannot be literal: if a person has a penis, then they are not a chick. It could be taken to metaphorically account for a characteristic of a woman, one who behaves as a man in e.g. giving orders, or to mean two people, a girl and her play toy, never mind the literal interpretation of a young male chicken.

  • My point about grammaticality was that I doubt that chick with dick can be verified -- my strong suspicion is that the form of this phrase actually used in the singular would be chick with a dick. But if folks can find citations, I'm happy. -- Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 20:13, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I've shoe-horned it in. - -sche (discuss) 05:16, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
