On "the Rest is History"

It's a hilarious way to end a story, because it implies that what has been told up to that point is not history. As far as I am concerned, history is a record of events that have happened in the past. If the story that was just told is not history, that means it's not a record of events that have happened, and so it is not true.

Why would someone, after telling a perfectly convincing story, ruin all their credibility by finishing with a stupid line like "the rest is history".
