I drink your milkshake

A new I can has your cheeseburger in the making? I reckon so. The I can has cheeseburger became a very popular internet catch phrase much like There will be blood became for Hollywood.

From what I could gather from the internet, the phrase has its origin in a congressional speech [yeah right, expect the politicians to say stuff about having everything and having it all!] –

The lines came straight from a transcript found from the 1924 congressional hearings over the Teapot Dome scandal, in which Sen. Albert Fall was convicted of accepting bribes for oil-drilling rights to public lands in Wyoming and California.  In explaining oil drainage, Fall’s “way of describing it was to say ‘Sir, if you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake and my straw reaches across the room, I’ll end up drinking your milkshake’.

In the present scenario, Obama is being shown as saying this to republican potential presidential runnin McCain. You can’t say it doesn’t suit.
