The proof is in the pudding?

"The proof is in the pudding." What does that mean? Well, I know what it means, but where did that come from? I looked it up, and this covers it. Enjoy. 

Apparently, the original phrase is "the proof of the pudding is in the eating." Now, that makes much more sense. And I love eating pudding :)

Now, where is the story in this? I'm off to brainstorm :)

I love that it dates back to Don Quixote, a romantic who battle windmills. Cool post. Now if you could just put a moat of pudding around a windmill that Don has to eat through before he can wield his spoon against the actual mill itself, you've got something!
