Yes, "The Court Jester" has a similar bit:
The pellet with the poison is in the flagon with the dragon.
The chalice from the palace has the brew that is true.

I don't know the "real answer" to the posted quote, but I suspect it is an homage to The Court Jester.
"Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed."
- G.K. Chesterton
