To Pud, or Not to Pud

While writing this post, I was reminded of a question asked by one of my campers years ago:

Is “pudding” a conjugation of a verb “to pud?” And if so, how does one pud?

Furthermore, I would add, is it safe for children under the age of 18 to engage in pudding without an adult supervisor? Is it legal to pud in Nevada? Can anyone pud, or is it an activity restricted to a select few, trained over the millenia to master the sacred art of pudding?

These, my friends, are the questions that our generation must answer. I can only hope, for our childrens’ sake, that we’re up to the challenge.

    Was it you I had the pudding etymology conversation with? I just remember searching through my Yiddish dictionary to see if I could find any related words.
