A phrase meant to represent one's humble acceptance of the fact that he was wrong all along, after it being made completely obvious by the other part.
Example 1:
Boyfriend: Hey babe, do you want some ice cream?
Girlfriend: I better not, I might get fat...
Boyfriend: You're already fat.
Girlfriend: When you put it that way...

No, wait that's sort of surreal. Here's a better one:

Example 2:
Person 1: You really shouldn't eat that beef.
Person 2: Why?
Person 1: It's murder! They killed a cow for that.
Person 2: You're eating Salmon.
Person 1: It's not the same thing.
Person 2: So you're saying that I shouldn't eat my beef because it's murder and we should treat all animals alike, inferring that I would not eat this were it human meat and yet you think of that dead salmon as an inferior creature in comparison to said cow.
Person 1: When you put it that way...

Get the When you put it that way mug.
When you turn it that way. It looks like an hourglass. When you put it that way 90 degrees clockwise it looks like a figure 8.
When you put it that way I gain a whole new view and perspective and the part of my brain that centers on vision and imagination lights up.
