It was really common in the ‘70’s. I can remember boys saying it in high school.

… it’s been in the American vernacular for over 15 years.

“While we may never know the exact origin of the phrase, one of the earliest, if not first, occurrences of “That’s what she said” in popular culture can be traced back to 1992 in the SNL sketch-turned-film, Wayne’s World.”

Wayne: Yeah, that’s what she said.
