I know, I know, the joke's old. Yell at me and -- me all you want, but I just couldn't help myself.
#!/dead/jokes/perl use Bases; $your = new Bases; if($your->are("belong") eq "us") { print "SOMEBODY SET UP US THE BOMB."; }

    I actually saw a "All your Pizza Hut are belong to us" poster recently stuck to the side of a Pizza Hut at Central Station here in Amsterdam.

    I couldn't help but snicker walking by, knowing I was one of the few people who'd understand it. I'm a geek and I love it.

      hah! all your pizza base are belong to us! hahah!

Let me in on the in joke

    OK, this is it. I see this "All your base are belong to us" all over the Internet. It's continually mentioned at slashdot, it's mentioned on perlmonks. If you do a google search you get hundreds of pages alluding to this joke. But not a single page seems to explain what this phrase means and where it comes from. That is apparently obvious. Sorry, but I must have been out during the "in" joke. Must have been working or something... Was the joke on for one single day, and everybody got notified by e-mail? Please enlighten me!

    ;-)

      Yes, it was. We called you, but you were out.

      And then somebody set up us http://www.allyourbase.net. Poke around, have fun. There's even a timeline somewhere.

      Here is a pretty complete history (and it's still being updated!).

        I was pleased when I found this (not from here) a few months after fact and that I wasn't the only one who saw the bridge in Northampton, Ma.

        I was ecstatic when I noticed it though sadly my girlfriend was not amused.

        --
        perl -p -e "s/(?:\w);([st])/'\$1/mg"

      You haven't searched long enough jeorgen. I was able to find an initial answer within a couple of hours. Then a fellow monk pointed me to a thread prior to what I had found so far. Show some initiative and you'll find the answer pretty easily. You just aren't thinking hard enough about your search.

      ALL HAIL BRAK!!!

      We decided to leave you out of the loop this time. Sorry for the problems it may have caused.

    Ok, I do not know what is scarier...

    The fact that this AYB thing has taken off the way it has, or...

    I actually spent the time to follow these links and find out what it was all about.


    Obviously, I am not busy enough at work.

    Off topic, but it looks like there are sill some people kicking this dead horse. On a security focus mailing list this morning, someone posted a question regarding an email they received:
