There's a class of words and phrases that I've forgotten the name of; I ran across them on Wikipedia a while ago. They're called something beginning with "snow". They are common terms that have existed for anywhere from centuries to years, with a common grammatical structure but substituted words. For example, "all your base are belong to us" would reduce to "all your A are belong to B", and any number of things could be A or B, like "all your software are belong to Microsoft". Does anyone remember what these are called?
