It's just a rearranged version of the way we would normally speak it. Shakespeare did it all the time, and it's literally legal.

Someone brought me a peanut butter jelly sandwich.

Someone set up us the bomb.

Oh shizzle. (excuse that stupid word)

I just found out that it's from the same game as "All your base..."

I found this on planettribes.com

In A.D. 2101
War was beginning.
Captain: What happen ?

Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.

Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What !
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You !!
Cats: How are you gentlemen !!

Cats: All your base are belong to us.

Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say !!
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
Captain: You know what you doing.
Captain: Move 'zig'.
Captain: For great justice.

So you were all wrong. The internet is a better resource than you guys. Oh wait, this is the internet. DOH.

What?

its the answer to "what happen?"
usually followed by "we get signal" then "main screen turn on"
...
at this point a man named cats should appear on your holographic projection system. he will tell you about how 'all your base are belong to them', and he will warn you that you 'have no chance to survive. make your time.'

It's from a game called Zero Wing. If you would actually READ the stuff in the AYB collection, you would know this. The Counter Strike reference is a parody.

Actually, they are japanese...

Also, is just a way to say "Alguien nos dio el pitazo" or "alguien nos puso un cuatro"...hard to explain en english, but means something like "Someone betrayed us"...that even I can understand...

Some one set up us the bomb! = Someone betrayed us...

But as Heinous said, it's hard to explain...When you are asian (as us) your mind can understand almost all...

Okay okay, enough arguing about the differences between English, Korean, Japanese, and Spanish.

1) "someone set up us the bomb" is another bad translation just like "all your base are belong to us"

2) counter strike made fun of it.

end.

Unless someone has something else to say about this...?

Actually, I only heard the creator is Korean. I did a little research just now. His name is Minh Le. It's definitly not japanese. It also doesn't sound Korean either, but i can't find actual info on him, but I think we're both wrong.

His last name sounds Chinesse... Anyway...maybe he's from China but he stills asian...

But as I said, when they said: "Someone set up us the bomb" is because they know that someone betrayed them...just look at the first All your base...what happens first? Isn't there an explosion before that dialogue?

That's great, except it's from Zero Wing, not Counter Strike. Quoted from the AYB Collection:

"In 1989, a game called Zero Wing came out for the Sega Genesis by Toaplan. It was an unremarkable game; the only feature that distinguished it from any other side-scrolling shooter was the barbaric way that it treated the English language. Fast forward to the year 2000, after just over a decade in obscurity (living next door to the New Kids on the Block and that guy who starred in Herman’s Head) a parody by David Lloyd at Overclocked.org brought this game’s bad grammar back into the pop culture spotlight. Chat rooms and message boards blazed with phrases like “Somebody set up us the bomb”, and “You are on the way to destruction”. Suicides among English teachers and professors rose 358% over normal rates; the highest for English educators since the Valley Girl phrase “Gag me with a spoon” became popular.

Not too long after the game’s bad grammar resurfaced, the pictures started appearing- many from Tribalwar.com. Then the Laziest Men on Mars mixed the first song. This new craze culminated when Bad_CRC created the first “All your base” video. Shortly after the first “All your base” video hit the NG Portal, parodies started appearing such as Mr. T vs. Cats, Eskimo Bob and Final Fight: 2101. Portal veterans braced for the worst, still weary from the “Wazzup” deluge- but most fortunately, this trend wasn’t as pervasive. "

It's in counter strike, so you can't say it's not.

Also ozcar "set up" here means "get ready," not "betray." It's just a tricky English way of saying it.

So it's in like 3 games. big deal. Why make a thread about it?

Dammit.

I know "someone set up us the bomb" means "someone betrayed us". Just like "All your base are belong to us" means "Your base belongs to us". The problem is the grammar. I don't think it's proper English. Why would this happen in the first place? Translation from Japanese is apparently confusing.

If "someone set up us the bomb" is actually proper grammar, which I'm almost sure it is not, I'll be surprised. Nobody talks like that, except the ones who don't know English very well.

Your ignorance is your weakness.

*le sigh*

The first time I posted that Zero Wing was the original game, I mentioned that Counter Strike parodied it. See it? Up there? I didn't say it wasn't in Counter Strike, I said it wasn't from Counter Strike. Difference? Yes. Thank you.

I can still quote it from counter strike, so that my quote of it will be FROM counter strike.

Also, I need to refute these other two points, so excuse the double-post:

Set up does mean betray in English. How many TV shows/movies have you heard people say "It's a set-up!" Duh.

So it's in like three games, why the thread? Click on the link to The All Your Base Collection and you'll see it was quite the popular thing for awhile.

It has double meaning. You think the "set up" icon in your computer is made for "betraying the computer?" It's out of context, dur.
