MemeFilter: What is the origin of the "I am in ur [something], [doing something]" meme? It usually uses JeffK-esque spelling ("ur", and a lot of z-endings). Some examples inside.

It's come from the game Starcraft. "I am in ur base killing ur doodz" is a now nigh mythological message sent from one player to another while he stomped the other's army into powder.

Response by poster: Sigh. See, I should have known that. And if Wikipedia's search had returned anything for a search on "I am in ur", I would have. Thanks, all.

I'm behind the times. My introduction to this latest meme was via this animated gif.

Oh, gods, lyam. I clicked on that at work and almost choked to death, struggling not to laugh out loud.

The wikipedia entry has been removed, but this is a fairly good summary. Tip of the hat to Anil.
