QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

christmas-pudding
News Item: “. . . as is always the case, the proof will be in the pudding. . . .”
K.R., a Baltimore reader, asks us to remember:
It is never the case that the proof is in the pudding.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
And can it be time for QT’s annual reminder that Christmas pudding should be stirred clockwise?
And with a wooden spoon?
Evidently.
Ho, Ho, Ho!
