A poor Japanese-to-English translation in the 1991 Genesis game Zero Wing, which is also famous for the origin of "all your base..."

It is commonly incorrectly stated as "somebody set us up the bomb". Clearly, the up comes before the us, although the resulting diphthongs makes it more difficult to say.

What CATS from Zero Wing did to the ship in A.D. 2101, when war was beginning. Maybe it means "Somebody has set up a bomb on us?" No one will ever know for sure.
Captain: What happen?
Operator: Somebody set up us the bomb!
