So's the Queen

Since it's baseball season again, here's one about Dizzy Dean, who pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals and was known for his poor grammer and diction.

An English interviewer, frustrated by Dizzy Dean's idiosyncratic relationship with language exclaimed, "Mr. Dean, don't you know the King's English?"

Dizzy reflected a moment. Then, "Sure I do, and so's the Queen."

From The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes.
