Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein once said: “the limits of my language means the limits of my world”, which I think means that anything outside our usual language can make about as much sense as Paula Abdul’s face.
The spirit of Wittgenstein lives on in the form of a German man, sat in his car, ranting about an English idiom and uploading it to YouTube.
This guy, Flula Hier, is infuriated by some ‘lucky, tiny bastard’ he has been playing basketball with. He tells the little man of his extraordinary luck, to which the man replied: “the proof is in the pudding.”
The idiom; ‘the proof is in the pudding’, completely bewilders Flula, who thinks it is a ridiculous thing to say. He quite rightly asks: ‘what is this… a cooking show?’
He then goes on to give an insightful analysis about this mysterious pudding that people are discussing and raises some important points about yellow paper, Einstein and Good Will Hunting.
