It appears that Judge Judy was the first to say “I’m the boss, applesauce.” It can be used as a way to put an end to an argument, basically indicating that the person who is “applesauce” gets the last word.
An attorney said to a client at a hearing, “You’re the boss, applesauce,” indicating that the client was the one who had to decide what he wanted to do next. The attorney turned to me and said “how would you say that in Spanish?” Of course, I couldn’t think of anything brilliant on the fly, so I simply interpreted that the decision was his.
I thought I’d put it out to the crowd to see if we can come up with any fun, creative ideas for “you’re the boss, applesauce” in Spanish/LOTS.
The best I have come up with after the fact is:
Usted es el patrón, jamón.
