That’s What She Said.

If you don’t watch The Office, or know the whole “That’s what she said” joke, you might want to just leave now.  This probably won’t make any sense.  Or, you could check this video out:

I seriously can’t watch that without peeing my pants a little bit.  “That’s what she said” jokes are one of my favorite parts of the show.  The problem with “that’s what she said” is that you have to use it in the appropriate company.  For instance, when I say it at work, nobody gets it.  It’s very sad.  And it makes me look like a perv.  Luckily, at home I can use it, and I do.  Enter Saturday night:

Me (to Shawn):  “So, where is all this snow you said we were going to get?”

Shawn:  “I’m just telling you what I heard.  There’s going to be 4-6 inches tonight and 6-8 inches tomorrow.”

Me:  “That’s what she said.”

Side note:  Yesterday he told me again we were going to get 6-8 inches, to which I told him I was still waiting for the 4-6 inches from last night.

And on Sunday afternoon:

Shawn:  “The timer went off for your cheese ball.”

Me:  “Ok, but it’s not quite stiff enough yet.”

Me (beating Shawn to it):  “That’s what she said.”

 

What in the world is going to happen to The Office this spring when Michael leaves?  I may have to stop watching.  He makes the whole show!

P.S.  Click the link to the cheese ball, it’s crazy delicious!

The law school is brewing with them right now. I think it's the sexual tension.

Lindsey said...

I think you need to write into the writers of the office and tell them the 6-8 inches "that's what she said" joke. Haha!! I love it.

Ange said...

I would have the 4-6 inches over the 6-8 inches any day.... and it sure as hell beats 10.5 inches (imo)

UGH that's what HE said all over 9th grade!! I thought that went away. I can't believe they've brought it back. I hate The Office. I have tried so many times. I sit and say "this will be the time I like it" and at the first commercial, I have to run away.

I can't believe how many people don't get "that's what she said" jokes, you're absolutely right! Are people's minds not in the gutter ever anymore?!

MommyLovesStilettos said...

LMAO!!! I love it!

I'm totally immature and I am always looking for reasons to say "That's what she said."

Tyly said...

1. I have no idea what's going to happen without Michael. That will be a sad, sad day.

2. That's what she said jokes are the best.

3. That cheese ball looks AMAZING.

So, I was a little late catching on to The Office and I just started watching last year and catching up on reruns on TBS. Oh, How I wish I would have understood the "That's what she said" jokes when I was teaching high school a few years back. It would have made life a little easier. haha

I agreed about Michael leaving. It just won't be the same!

Shell said...

LOL My husband and I have that same kind of humor.

caraheck said...

The first time I commented on your blog and saw "That's what she said" above the comment box, I instantly knew I'd love this blog.

I about peed my pants watching that video. I will cry when Michael Scott leaves The Office.

Brittany said...

Totally love the "that's what she said" jokes! My husband and I are always trying to beat each other! Cheese Ball recipe sounds delish... Thanks for sharing!

Corrie and Phil said...

Thanks for the good laugh this morning. We are huge fans of The Office, and that montage made me laugh out loud...as did your conversation with Shawn.

Side note: Phil thought your last comment on our blog was funny because you said Isaac looks like him after I titled the blog "Hefty Hefty" and said that he is working on his third chin. Ha! Thanks for attaching that to Phil rather than me. :)

Chrissi said...

thanks for the laugh...again. i think i have watched it too many times. hahaha, love it!

Amy said...

Nothing makes me happier than the Office, Michael Scott, and TWSS jokes!

Great comedic timing there with Shawn, Tami;)

I've never watched the show, but I'm pretty sure I can figure it out from the conversation!

Marjorie said...

"That's what she said" jokes run rampant in our house. I'm just waiting for our 4 yr old to start saying it. He hears it enough, it's only a matter of time. I can tell you, that will be a very proud day for us!

Meghan said...

My husband is the king of "That's what she said" lines! I swear. And I have to admit - I think they are HILARIOUS!

Krystyn said...

Oh, I puffy heart those lines, too! Freaking hilarious.

MrsDixon said...

Oh I love those jokes too! Hopefully your hubby appriciates the free humor you provide him!

That is one of my favorite things to say. I work with almost all men and they love it. We haven't watched The Office this season and I miss it. I do agree that it won't be the same without Michael though.

Before Z deployed, we all went to a football game (his parents, siblings, etc.). All of the boys were making dirty "TWSS" jokes and my MIL wanted to join in. She said something that totally didn't make sense and finally, my brother in law asked her if she even knew what it meant. She goes "um, I thought that's what you said when you told a stupid joke?". My SIL (very loudly) goes "noooo mom, it's about penises and sex!".

My family. A riot.

Love, love, love The Office!

Last weekend Leland and I were cleaning and I told him to put some things in the hall closet.

Leland: what should I put in the closet.

Me: Just shove whatever you want in there.

Leland: That's what she said.
