Okay, the example is seriously flawed. The basic origin of "that's what she said" is sexual bragging on the part of the man. Which excludes "too small". It would have to be "this is too big". And yes, of course we of manly self-confidence will say it in response to "that is too small", but only as an intentional, ironic departure from the norms of the joke. — Kazvorpal (talk) 04:21, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

I don't think that's the case in most usages -- generally, it can be any prurient intentional misinterpretation. If someone were to express their love of raw seafood by saying 'I love slurping clams', that would be a `that's what she said`-able statement (to use a contrived example). 05:26, 7 January 2022 (UTC)
