Who started this? Is it a MacNN thing? BBQ? A wider Intarweb fad? I'm always behind on these things. I didn't hear about "All your base" until everyone else was sick of it. Same with "OMG TEH WINNAR!!!!!1111oneoneone". So does the fact that this fad has reached me mean that it's already tiresome? Somebody fill me in.

the first time i did it, i did it because it would obviously be funny to change a few words in a quote. can't say i'd seen it done before, but i'm sure loads of other people had to same idea.

Do a forum search to see who did it first.

It's been going on for years. I would say the first time I have seen it was back over at the ihateapple.com forums in the late 90s. It didn't originate here.

Well I think that "fixed" is better than "all your base"

And it's much better than +1, IBL, and anything related to the timeline, all of which are brainless and pointless posts that serve no purpose other than to piss me off.

I was too... not by your wife, but mine... actually, by the doctor, but she really wanted it. Anyway, now I'm divorced, but I'm still "fixed"... or "broken" is the operative term.

I could tell you where it all comes from...but...nah.

(And yes, by the time it reaches MacNN, it's beyond tiresome. Hell, it should be against federal law by that time.)

By the time it reached OMFG it was tiresome.

It was going on well before that.

That was uncalled for. There was no reference to OMG, nor was that my intention.
