Back in the far distant past of the internet (round about 1993, it seems), back when Usenet was actually a bunch of popular discussion groups, the newsgroup alt.gothic had a simple post made by one Yohaun, a short list of translations of the phrase "Oh my god! There's an axe in my head!". Responses contributed translations in more languages. Now, nearly 20 years later, this list continues to exist and grow
, although the link in the old post now redirects after a short wait to this new page, which contains a history of the meme and features extensive footnotes about corrections to the various translations which have been made over the ensuing years. If you find you have corrections or other translations to offer, contact the website owners
and help them out!
