    This is also from Tintin. What does the idiom mean? I looked up for it in my dictionary, in no avail.
    "So there" is merely emphatic. Children often use the phrase ie:

    "My daddy is stronger than your daddy. So there!"
    "My mommy is a better cook than your mommy. So there!"

    It's like verbally sticking one's tongue out at somebody.:)

    I've never heard this phrase spoken, so I would like to know which of the two words (so / there) should be accented? Or maybe both equally?
    Thanks in advance.
