I'm sure that when Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis crowed about drinking up preacher Paul Dano's milkshake at the end of There Will Be Blood, he wasn't doing it to become a catchphrase phenomenon. However, everything has the possibility of becoming parodied and this is one of the best to come out of 2007. Check out these youtube clips and see what a riot Day-Lewis's line has become. There are several.

F.Y.I. The line was uttered by Sen. Albert Fall during a 1924 Congressional Hearing on oil drilling rights. He uses the metaphor to explain the concept of drainage.

Enjoy (slurp)
