Over 9000, mudkips, etc are memes, internet inside jokes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Meme

When someone on the internet becomes "web-savvy" (aware of the web but not visiting the place of birth of these jokes), they decide every meme is funny. The more common memes (ORLY, over 9000, so i herd u like mudkips), which are the way they found out about memes, are then repeated/spammed by these "web-savvy" users. This causes a "pay it forward" sort of system that creates lots of people using memes when they shouldn't be used. And you end up with people who are tired of seeing them being repeated over and over and over again.

Sorry for the passive-aggressive speech. :|
