Satirical news sheet the Onion (age unknown) shocked the world yesterday by running an "All Your Base" story that was actually funny. Running under the headline "Congress Adds 'All Your Base Are Belong To Us' Amendment To Bankruptcy Bill" this story broke from the tradition of AYBABTU History with wit, intelligence and humour.

The Onion bit is at the bottom of the front page...

The Onion is where tired memes go to die.

It'll be a dead meme when we see it in sitcoms and MTV. I won't let it go until I see it displayed on the giant screen at a baseball game.

or at least Loveline. You can pull down the clip off one of those links, or right here. I did see an AYBABTU t-shirt yesterday though, not a gigantic screen, but it's going to happen. Personally I still think it's kinda funny.

On the Apple website, there's a fat movie (11 Mb!) about customising some Apple mail client. One of the messages in the demo has the subject line 'Re: FW: FW: All your base are belong to u'. If I were All Your Brand, I'd be worried...
