The phrase "Said the actress to the bishop" is an informal British exclamation, offering humour by serving as a punch line that exposes an unintended double entendre*. An equivalent phrase in North America is "that's what she said". Each phrase is an example of a Wellerism**, exposing a second meaning of what precedes it. The versatility of such phrases, and their popularity, lead some to consider them clichéd.Quote
A double entendre is a figure of speech or a particular way of wording that is devised to be understood in two ways, having a double meaning. Typically one of the meanings is obvious, given the context whereas the other may require more thought. The innuendo may convey a message that would be socially awkward, sexually suggestive, or offensive to state directly.Quote
Wellerisms, named after sayings of Sam Weller in Charles Dickens's novel The Pickwick Papers, make fun of established clichés and proverbs by showing that they are wrong in certain situations, often when taken literally. In this sense, wellerisms that include proverbs are a type of anti-proverb. Typically a wellerism consists of three parts: a proverb or saying, a speaker, and an often humorously literal explanation.
