Today, my dad snapped at me for assuming that Eminem was the one to come up with the phrase, “Will the real ___ please stand up?” since that was the only time I’ve heard it. Apparently, I “always assume things are modern”. So I asked him where in fact the phrase came from and guess what? He didn’t know. FML

I believe the phrase comes from the 50’s TV show To Tell the Truth.

Try telling your dad that Friedrich Nietzsche ripped off "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger" from Kelly Clarkson. That will be fun!
