Ummm... You're A Pompous Jerk

When did starting a post with "ummm, no" become de rigeur? I'd like to know who started this trend. You've read their posts on blogs around the intertubes:

Ummm, no. Everyone knows that Heroes is the best show on television.

Ummm, no. I think you should learn something about economics then get back to me.

Ummm, no. I could crush this entire city under the weight of my enormous member.

It strikes the perfect balance between condescension and jackassery that makes comment sections such a joy to visit. If you catch yourself doing this, for the love of Bender stop!
