As an American, I think we should honor the long history of this proverb by at
least *knowing* the full form, since "the proof is in the pudding" makes
little sense. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating." is a bit of an
archaic wording, but it does make sense; you don't know the quality of pudding
before you taste it.

The proof *of* the pudding is in the eating.


Except when the proof is actually *in* the pudding...

Anyway, since American pudding is nothing like British pudding we
altered the phrase. And now our way is the right way, gosh darn it!!!

Or... you begin to eat it, see toenail clippings and proclaim, "The
proof is *in* the pudding: it's inedible!!"
