The U.S. Army marches to the "All your base" command
After our recent item about how the bizarre English translation of the game ZeroWing has developed into a meme of enormous proportions, we began -- predictably -- to hear back from readers eager to fill in the blanks.

Which is how we found out about one place where ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US has really developed a following: the U.S. Army. Bill McIntyre sent us this note from a friend nicknamed "Army Chip," a member of the "Permanent Opposing Force" that runs combat exercises against other divisions (a fan base well suited for intergalactic shoot-'em-up games like this one):

"We watch that video about three times a week. It has many and humorous military uses. At physical training in the morning: 'How are you gentleMEN!' At operations orders: ' ... and then, sir, all their base are belong to us!' On the intercepted radio frequencies: 'you have no chance to survive, make your time!' This thing has a huge and twisted following."

Looking for the disco version with the flash animations.

You know what this "All your base" nonsense reminds me of?  That old lady saying "Where's the beef?" on those old Wendy's commercials.
