Archie Bunker Said “The Cake Is a Lie” in 1974

Yes folks, Archie Bunker, the prickly patriarch of All in the Family, uttered the unavoidable Portal catchphrase in a 1974 episode of All in the Family.

Context:

Edith: Archie, I can prove that you’re 50.
Archie: How you gonna do that?
Edith: It says so on your birthday cake!

Archie: Well I tell you that the cake is a lie!
