"All your base are belong to us" — Origin of a meme
From Wikipedia: "'All your base are belong to us' (often shortened to 'All Your Base,' 'AYBABTU,' or simply 'AYB') is a broken English phrase that became an Internet phenomenon or meme in 2000–2002. The phrase came about as the result of the spread of a GIF animation [top] that depicted the slogan. The text comes from the opening cutscene [below]
of the 1991 European Sega Mega Drive version of the video game Zero Wing by Toaplan, which was poorly translated from Japanese. It was popularized by the Something Awful message forums."
