This is really a combination of a couple SysAdmin / Programmer jokes. The old “use sudo to tell someone to do something” bit, finished off with an unsigned integer joke (which I've seen variations on floating around for a while, like this one). Not sure who really originated either. Though the “sudo do this” one probably has been around about as long as the sudo command itself.
