"I drink your milkshake!"

A guy named Jurgen has set up a There Will Be Blood fansite dedicated to Daniel Day-Lewis' explosive "I drink your milkshake!" line from the end of the film.

He's even setting up free @idrinkyourmilkshake.com email addresses for anyone who registers and posts about the film.

Now, I agree it's a great line, but trying to put it in the pop culture pantheon with "say hello to my little friend" is stretching it just a bit, not to mention cheapening the power of the film by reducing it to a cheap pop culture slogan.

I admire their enthusiasm about the film and any positive attention the film receives...but I don't think it quite suits a film of this caliber.
