What does (get this) below mean?


While I was reading about the Knight Harbinger I went down a fun research rabbit hole and discovered that the Office of the Harbinger was abolished in 1846 along with another transportation-related office: Master of the Barges, who (get this) was also Keeper of the Swans. Keeper. Of. The. Swans. What a time. Now I have that song from Les Misérables stuck in my head. Master of the House, but with these other lyrics. Master of the Barges, Keeper of the Swans…da, da, da, da, da, da and your job is gone.

"Believe this," in the sense: "Can you believe this??"
