From where does the "ALL YOUR BEER ARE BELONG TO US" term flow from?

I'm feeling pop-culture lost here?

Here is the history.

All your beer are belong to us is a modification of the famed original.

There used to be a video game made in Japan called Zero Wing. It had a bad Engrish translation at the beginning of the game that went something like ""In AD 2101. War was beginning. What happen? Somebody set us up the bomb. We get signal. What! Main screen turn on. It's you!! How are you gentlemen. All your base are belong to us!" So 'all your base are belong to us' caught fire as geek-hip slang. Probably more geeky than hip... so all your beer is a spin off of the Engrish joke...

Edit: Chet... you're too quick for me!

BTW - look at the home page of that site, and check out the pictures. It is work safe despite the satirical warning.
