Pineapple on pizza is the best ever Canadian invention. If there were such a thing as the Nobel prize for culinary achievements, Sam Panopoulos would have been a shoo-in for it. Alas, the genius behind this utterly delicious creation died on the 8th of June 2017, so he will never receive his just deserts now. Ontario ought to build a statue in his honour to make up for it.

I have to confess, I just googled shoo-in and just deserts because I thought both of them were wrong.
It seems both are the original correct versions, and shoe-in/just desserts, although both are widely used, and probably would have been given a pass in English class even decades ago, are not the original or most correct versions.

I am shocked at my own ignorance of this.
