Anyone else notice what is being refered to at this link: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=234824 I'd like someone to explain the joke because I don't get it. :(

That "All your base" quote comes from a very poorly translated version of the game Zero Wing. It's been beaten to death all over the internet in countless Flash animations, and I even found an mp3 where someone took Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and replaced all the words with quotes from the game.

Here's a link if you wanna see some of the aftermath...

The fact that you didn't know what this was is a good sign... maybe it's finally gonna die... things are funny the first few times, but this has been going on for 5+ years now...

I'm kind of sad that I actually know what the joke was now, although it is funny. [since I just heard it.]
