|1.||the proof is in the pudding|
A phrase that, when uttered, instantly identifies the speaker as being incredibly stupid and illiterate.
The original saying is "the proof of the pudding is in the eating", basically meaning that something has to be experienced/utilized in order to prove how good it is.

Similar mistakes include could care less (couldn't care less), stop running around with your chicken cut off (stop running around like a chicken with its head cut off), begs the question (raises the question), here here (hear hear), and all that glitters is gold (all that glitters/glisters is not gold - "glisters" is used in the original Shakespeare quote)

PROGRESSIVE: Whatever you say, dumbass.
