LOL, and who better to claim ownership than the Delta House?

I would love to bid but I would be the guy that Ebay goes after for their percent of the payment once the auction is over.

Seems like it would be a better fit for the Extreme Teen Bible. Anyone want to do the honors?

aaron, do you like any threads on metafilter?

Que? It's a joke, referring to the fast spread of the meme. "YOUR" doesn't refer to anyone at all; I was only copying the wacked-out diction of the original statement. Chill.

Dunno if you'll see it when you visit, but DealMac is using "All your deals are belong to us" as its tagline on some (apparently randomly-selected) visits.

Ha! DealMac is using it as one of their Taglines.

I wuz gonna do that, but I thought you needed an amazon account.
And they put an 's' on the 'base.' WTF!? It's as if they feel it's funnier with correcter grammar.

Maybe I'm just a cranky bastard, but this whole "All your base" thing wore out its welcome even faster than "AmI(X)OrNot."

Yes, Skot, you're apparently quite cranky. I personally love this meme.

I must admit I am getting a bit tired of this meme myself, but only because I'm tired of laughing so much.

I think someone should link to it here so that the people who haven't seen or heard it don't think we're insane.

I forgot where I saw it, but someone called the show Loveline and blabbed about it.

A thread containing links to said Loveline audio. (snarfed from Fark)

Cluetrain co-author Chris Locke's "Entropy Gradient Reversal" e-newsletter riffed on All Your Base today (and his site also has a link to the Flash movie at the top). Wired News also picked up on it.
