I, for one…

I’ve noticed the last couple of months, that a certain funny expression is used more and more. It goes like this:

I, for one, welcome our new [foo] overlords.

I’ve seen Jamie Zawinski use it for ages on his weirdly amusing blog. Many Simpsons fans will recognize that the quote is actually Kent Brockman’s.

The use of this phrase on the net was already identified in 2002, and noted again in 2004. Apparently, some people call this a snowclone.

I, for one, welcome this random abuse of Simpsons quotes!
