I was surprised no one brought up Sophie Tucker in the discussion of the
So I says issue. When I think of "so I says" I think of her Ernie schtick.

My ex owned a restaurant called "Sophie's Bib & Tucker," I so I heard a
lot of Sophie lore, probably much more than most people my age.

[tawdry joke follows]


I was in bed with my boyfriend Ernie last night when he says to me:
Soph?! You've got no tits and a tight box.
So I says to him: "Ernie?! Get off my back!"
