Alright, I finally remembered to ask this question....what the hell does "all your base are belong to us" mean?? I faintly remember it being something about an internet typo, but I have no idea what was trying to be said, or why this became such a legend. Arite hit me back, thanks!

That's.....it??

I am utterly dumbfounded that joke has lasted as long as it has. Kind of reminds me of "what".

It didn't start in '91. More like around '99 or '00, most likely through emulators, by proud nerds at college campuses everywhere :-D It's not really a joke, just something that people can be "in the know" about. If I remember there have been music videos, club remixes, t-shirts, ect. about it.

I seem to remember seeing it pop up in the early 90s actually.

Well, it wasn't the "phenomenon" it was a few years back.

ROFLMAO! That's the first I've ever heard of it. Even better than "All your base..." is "Somebody put us up the bomb!" And the eloquent response of the Captain: "What you say?!"

I dunno what it is about "All your base..." but I just loved it. It was like 15 kinds of cool and I couldn't even begin to tell you why. It just was/is.

I remember running into AYBABTU a few years back and was puzzled too. What you NEED to see is the spoofs. The one with Mr. T stands out the most. It was another flash thingy. Maybe someone here can dig it up. Also, ThinkGeek.com sells some nifty AYBABTU shirts:

It' s a studio apartment at $825 a month in Midwood, Brooklyn. I don't think that's a super deal, i think it's average. I am giving him $50 tonight but I don't think I should give him any more other than during the holidays.
