    it's from a thread on a different board (I think) in which someone was talking about some inside info they had, and they said that, in reference to some inside source, the information had to be correct because "...he tell me."

    also, expect this thread to at some point reference "send in the books" and spiral into spam ;)

    Not just ...he tell me, no. This guy stood up on his chair and typed with great fury as he hit the caps lock. It was - if I recall correctly, HE TELL ME

    100000000 times more powerful than in lowercase. It resonated with us. Got deep down in our souls.

    Man I've missed a lot of stuff around here but luckily I actually saw that. Quite hilarious, that poster in general was a huge nutcase

    It's from here. There's a link that archives it somewhere, but I can't find it offhand. Somebody'll have it.

    It's hilarious, though.

    it was this board actually, BEFORE armada started. i was there. i lived it. it was awsome.

    it started out as a guy, claiming that Peter cullen was going to be the voice of armada prime, and when asked for his proof, he just came out with "he tell me"

    then, to make matters even more hilarious, this same thread spawned the "jhaxis= jerk" quotation.

    those where the days

    Actually it happened on this board. It was so hilarious that it was repeated for months then it would pop up with each new line for awhile. But yeah this guy came in swearing that he had inside info. Then when asked for his source and made fun of by members who HAD seen the protos his response was basically I know I'm right HE TELL ME!. Only his use of the English language wasn't quite as good as that. I'm sure some one has it saved somewhere.

    One TF website does toy reviews with variations on how much "jam" it is...I don't remember which one.

    ...dig dig dig...

    Ben's World of Transformers.

    And some helpful information about jaAm is here.

    Certainly wreaks, though the subtle "my friend" answer will surely never live up to "HE TELL ME"

    Oh the golden days of "HE TELL ME!!". Good times.

    Wasn't his screen name Ghost of Optimus Prime?

    As Wheeljaxx said, it was on this very board and the poster claimed that Peter Cullen was going to voice Optimus Prime in Armada. Of course, response to his claims were very skeptical. He got pissed and thus was born one of the best retaliatory quotes in message board history.
