: Most people say "You can't have your cake and eat it too." But I'm sure I read somewhere that the actual expression was "You can't eat your cake and have it too." The latter seems to make more sense as once you "eatin'" you can't have, whereas you would necessarily need to have before you could eat. I can't seem to find any detailos on this???? Thanks!

*I just found a response in the archives, although I'm sure I had read that the original was "Can't eat....."
