Pound Sign

New York City, pop culture, art and nightlife. Because nobody else is blogging about those things.

Jen and I have been having a lot of fun with the "I drink your milkshake" meme. Very glad to have seen the movie so I know what the fuck everybody's talking about. And in the film, it is SO effective, especially as it comes roaring to the conclusion and that incredible final line. Totally looking for an excuse to use milkshake in conversation that won't get me punched. It's just so satisfying! And I'd better hurry too, because the Oscars are this Sunday and since there are bound to be, oh, 5-12 jokes about it on the air that night, it will be well played out. In fact, Corporate Casual raises an excellent point about that.

In a cab a few nights back we were musing that the meme could have been "Bastard in a basket! Bastard in a basket!" but perhaps that's just too brutal. It would make an excellent name for a punk band, however.
