There's a Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney game (which is made by Capcom, not SE) where the counselor is using an unusual metaphor for the judge. The counselor tells the judge that a characters "words are the milk, and you're the spoon." The judge responds by saying "I'm a spoon!? I'm no spoony bard I'll have you know!"
Unless spoony bards are popular in Japan, I believe this is a reference to FF4.
