Baldrick is a character in the various Blackadder TV series.
Rowan Atkinson is Blackadder, Tony Robinson his miserable thick servant through the centuries.

It is a play on words. The correct phrase is. 'I resent that remark.' Used to object to something someone has said about you.

However, especially where I live it has been altered to make a joke out of ones embarrassment. Hence, 'I resemble that remark.'
