Dumbass Sayings: “The Proof is in The Pudding”

Is the proof semen?
Have you ever heard the saying “The proof is in the pudding” and wondered what the hell that’s supposed to mean? Me too. Unless you find a bloody knife covered in fingerprints in your pudding then that doesn’t make sense. Odds are if you find that, you’re probably too busy vomiting to solve a crime. Maybe this saying does make sense. No one looks in pudding for proof. When a killer shoots someone usually they’ll drop the gun at the scene so they don’t have to be linked to the weapon. Don’t drop it at the scene of the crime! Drop it in a big bowl of pudding! Who the hell would think to check a bowl of pudding unless they’ve heard this saying and believe in it literally.

Actually, this saying was originally “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” Over time it became shortened and completely misinterpreted as most old writings tend to be.The original saying means you don’t know how good a pudding tastes like til you eat it. Not sure why that needed its own saying. That’s like saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” except maybe more understandable to fat people who don’t read a lot.
