Eat your cake.....

Posted by Thomas on October 26, 2003

I often hear this phrase miss spoken.
As I understand it, it should read "Eat your cake and have it too". I once heard it explained that you can eat your cake and not have it, have your cake and not eat it, but the trick is to "eat your cake and have it too."
Is that the correct interpitation?
