When you quote a proverb, do it right..........

[ Edited ]

The "proof is "  NOT   "in the pudding"  like i hear too much -  the "proof of the pudding is in the eating"  is the proverb. check it out.   i am on a quest to stop this error --- because it is driving me nuts.

I don't know where the proof is; I just like pudding...

What a goal.  That's right up there with my DH correcting me when I say unthaw.

I'd be happy if I could stop hearing "I seen that."  8-(

Yes, I'm sure you say defrost @ms traditional but I'm clearly untraditional. Hubby is trying to break me of the habit.

I just wish people would stop thinking It's all right to get it wrong.  This country is showing its stupidity to the world.

Edited for spelling.

If you are going to call people out, I would suggest you get it right. Who even says "the proof is NOT in the pudding"?  At least in my region of the country people say "the proof IS in the pudding".

@ms traditionalI'm sorry for you.  It seems you are in for an up-hill battle here.

"Unthaw" is mentioned in several dictionaries.  It is used to mean "to melt."
