With reference to There Will Be Blood and the infamous "I drink your milkshake" quote:

So, yeah… Seriously. What the hell is the milkshake thing?

“As I understand it (NOT having seen the movie), and to cross two memes together, “I drink your milkshake, I drink it up!” is a way of saying “I have inflicted massive pwntangage on you.” He might belong a base or two as well.

I do not know if there is a milkshake present that the pwntanged individual was drinking, and whether or not said hypothetical milkshake was indeed drunk a la Jules Winfield.

But that seems to be the gist.” — Jay

Fandom meme

As stolen from Sofa Chip.

Choose 10 characters (preferably from the same fandom) and answer the questions that follow. No peeking until your list is done!

1. Nick Andopolis (Freaks and Geeks)
2. Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)
3. Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
4. Xander Harris (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
5. Daniel Osbourne (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
6. River Tam (Firefly)
7. John Dorian (Scrubs)
8. GOB Bluth (Arrested Development)
9. Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
10. Jim Halpert (The Office)

1. Characters 4, 9 and 10 are at an arcade. What game do they choose to play, and who wins?
Street Fighter 2. Since all the characters are essentially goofballs, I imagine a lot of smack-talking and non-competitiveness. Xander would win just cause he's the biggest geek but Dean would put up a good fight cause he's a manly man!

2. Make up an e-mail address for 6.

3. If 8 had an iPod or some kind of music player, what kinds of songs would you find in it?
Europe - The Final Countdown!! Lots of Journey and stadium rock too.

4. What would you do if 9 suddenly paid you a visit?
Stare in awe at his prettiness then turn into a ball of mush. I'd go extremely red from blushing so much too. I wouldn't be able to say anything because my mind would be going, "Hubba hubba hubba."

5. Do you think 6 and 4 are made for each other?
Ha! One's an unstable genius and the other a lovable goofball. I really think River could kill Xander for being so inane.

6. 1 challenges 3 to a no-holds-barred duel. Who will win and how?
Lorelai Gilmore. She could speak circles around Nick and confuse the hell out of him. Nick may have the height and the build but Lorelai, especially a hyper-caffeinated one, will layeth the smack down if need be.

7. 7, 2 and 1 order a pizza. What toppings does each one request, and what do the others think of the choices?
Nick would order lots of cheese. Veronica lots of pepperoni and JD heaps of anchovies. Veronica would be loving Nick's cheese but disgusted at the anchovies on JD's. Both guys would love Veronica's choice though.

8. What subject would 1 teach if s/he were a teacher/professor?
He'd be a really terrible music teacher. Or the kind of PE teacher that every kid loves. He wouldn't ride people very hard and have a 'run, if you feel like it' attitude to class.

9. 5 and 10 go on their first date. Where would they go, and what would they do?
They're both dudes and very straight so I'm going to consider this question null.

10. 8 sings karaoke and dedicates a song to 7. What song would s/he dedicate and why?
Europe's 'The Final Countdown'. It's the first song that comes to mind whenever I think of GOB. But I guess realistically, he'd probably makeup a song along the lines of 'Brosephs for life'.

11. How would 8 court 6?
By stalking her. River will hate every single second of GOB lavishing her with attention.

12. Describe the relationship between 2 and 8 in the canon. Would you change it? Why?
Yikes. I guess I understand now why the rules same fandom.

13. In your list, who do you think is the perfect match for 3 and why?
Xander Harris. Something about his goofiness would complement hers and whenever she gets too stressed out, he'd be able to calm her down with his lame jokes that she will most certainly laugh at.

14. 2 has a dream where 10 tells him/her to save 1, who is facing certain doom. What would 2 do?
So Jim would tell Veronica to save Nick? Veronica would probably save Nick. She's a do-gooder deep down, and in this scenario I'm actually imagining them dating.

15. 9 and 6 are about to get married, until 3 crashes their wedding and abducts 9 against his/her will. 6 follows them, but must forge an uneasy alliance with his/her archrival, 1. They must then hijack some form of transportation from 8 in order to get to 3’s lair, where they must fight against 3’s evil zombified minions. What will happen next?
To make this clear; Dean is going to marry River, get abducted by Lorelai and River will forge an alliance with Nick. River will naturally kick all the zombie's asses while Nick cowers in the corner. However there won't be a happy ending for River and Dean because Dean would have realized his affection for Lorelai, which she naturally reciprocates. Them two will ride off into the sunset. Meanwhile, River spurned from Dean's betrayal will channel her frustrations into martial arts and become a champion martial artist. Nick will die three years later still cowering in that corner.

16. 8 receives a gift from 9. Does s/he open it or not? If so, what is inside?
GOB will definitely open Dean's gift. Inside would be a switchblade which GOB will scoff at and throw into the sea ("return from whence you came!)

17. 4 is walking home when s/he sees a cute fluffy creature, which promptly begins rubbing itself against his/her legs. Will s/he kick it away, or take it home?
Yeah, Xander would take it home and name it Captain Spankypants regardless of its gender.

18. 8 is dared by 4 to strip while pole-dancing in front of 7. Write a short dialogue about this.
GOB, Xander and JD? Hee..

GOB: Do you understand how attractive dancing on the pole can be now, JD?
JD [hysterically]: My eyes! My eyes! They burnnnn!
Xander [giggling]: Dude, you gotta strip! Let's make that little piggy squeal even more!
JD [hysterically]: Turk, save meeeee!
Xander: Strip! Strip! Strip!
GOB [sleazily]: You asked for skin, now you've got it.
GOB proceeds to pull off his velcro-ed stripper pants in a flash.

Ugh. Righting that was like writing really bad fan fiction.

19. What smiley/emoticon would best describe 5?
Actually, none. Oz is simply too stoic to warrant one.

20. If you had the chance to rewrite 1’s life, how would you change it?
He would realize that his flirtation with disco was completely retarded and go back to hanging with the guys. He'd also get back with Lindsay Weir and stay together till the end of high school.
