"I resemble that remark!" is a classic comedy
line. Anything you have read in recent popular culture containing has stolen from the past.
I myself was introduced to this line by watching Curly
utter it in countless episodes of The Three Stooges
. The joke proceeds like this:
(Snooty Rich Lady): "Murphy, who are
those slovenly creatures at the door?"
(Murphy the butler): "The plumbers, Madam."
(Snooty Rich Lady): "Well, send them to the servant's entrance. We can't allow rifraff in the front door."
(Curly): "I resemble that remark!
I suspect, however, that the Three Stooges stole the line themselves from Amos 'n Andy
