Arg!  I have heard so many people say this lately, and it is just plain
wrong!  It doesn't mean anything!

I have it on EXPERT advice that the proper saying is "The proof of the
pudding is in the eating."  This DOES make sense.  This was taught to me by
my 9th grade 2nd year algebra teach Mr. Odellevan Smith.  At that time he
was somewhere between 150 and 200 years old, and he had a million sayings,
including such gems as:

Gravy points  - easy points on a test
Don't be on the bottom of the totem pole - straighten up, or your going to
get sent to the principal
Blackbird - it was a negative comment to some class member, equivalent to
calling him a jerk

and quite a few more that my Alzheimers-riddled brain can't recall at the

He was strict, and he was old fashioned, but so long as you were a well
behaved student (you could have a sense of humor - that was OK), he was a
fun teacher.
