I'm of the opinion that "slap my ass and call me XXX" originated in the 1980's.

It only appears in Google Groups in 1990, but GG goes back to 1981. If it were that common in the 1980's, it would probably appear at least once on there.

"Do something to me and call me xxx" is found at least as early as 1940, as I found a comic strip where a character said "Hit me on the head and call me shorty."
