All Your Base Are Belong To Calvin and Hobbes

All Your Base Are Belong To Us

Calvin and Hobbes do the famous “All your base are belong to us” scene from Zero Wing.

?All your base are belong to us? (often referred to as ?All Your Base? or abbreviated AYBABTU, AYBAB2U, or simply AYB) is an Engrish phrase that sparked an Internet phenomenon in 2001 and 2002. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the English version of the 1989 Japanese video game Zero Wing by Toaplan. While the translation was generally poor, this phrase stood out as particularly humorous. From mid-to-late 2000 many images were digitally altered so that the phrase was added in, either obviously or discreetly, led by the Something Awful Forums[1]. Some of these images were compiled with those created and posted to a forum thread on TribalWar.com by their members; one of whom, known only as ?Bad_CRC?, created the AYBABTU Flash animation that was widely downloaded and later featured on various online and televised news outlets. – Wikipedea
