The Null Device
The Mahir of 2001:
Another update about the All Your Base meme: there's this Zero Wing FAQ
speculates that the amusing translation is a result of Toaplan being too
underfunded to properly localise it for Europe. and the job falling on
some staffer who was studying English at night school, or somesuch.
Toaplan themselves went out of business in the mid-90s, but someone must
own the copyrights/trademarks of Zero Wing; perhaps we will be faced with
the prospect of them jumping on the bandwagon and commissioning an official
All Your Base Belong To Us pop single, following on from the Ham(p)ster Dance
Mahir's dance-pop effort.
