A Winner Is You!

Want to be a winner is you?

The phrase "A Winner Is You!" was a piece of bad English that originally appeared in Pro Wrestling on the NES that later became an internet meme.

Earl Dervish of the Pokémon Academy speaks in broken English. At one point he asks:

"Want to be a winner is you?"
