DINOBOT HAS SPOKEN, MY RIGID GRILL STRUCTURE

This began on Usenet in 1997 with a Transformers fan who used the name Dinobot. His .sig file was
"Dinobot has spoken. My rigid grill structure is coming in on your unprotected cargo door- Tom Servo Riding with Death"
Intended to be parsed like so:
[blah]
Dinobot has spoken.
"My rigid grill structure is coming in on your unprotected cargo door" --Tom Servo, Riding with Death
Memory being what it is, the first line got associated with the first part of the MST3K quote and ended up becoming quite the meme in Transformers circles, ending up being used in several fan fics. At BotCon98 a group of fans even got the voice actor for Dinobot to say the line in a suggestive manner. Often when the origin of something is unclear it is assumed to be a sexual innuendo, and for a while this quote was no exception.
