“If you drink vodka & orange juice from the skull of a guy named Phil— Philip’s head screwdriver”

A screwdriver cocktail and a Phillips head screwdriver (a tool) are different things, but there are jokes.
     
“If you drink vodka & orange juice from the skull of a guy named Phil, you have yourself a Philip’s head screwdriver” was posted on Twitter by mᎥᏦᎬ ᏞᎥᏆᎬᏒᎪᏞᏞᎽ on September 19, 2020. The saying was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 24, 2021, then removed by the moderators.
 
     
Wikipedia: Screwdriver (cocktail)
A screwdriver is a popular alcoholic highball drink made with orange juice and vodka. While the basic drink is simply the two ingredients, there are many variations. Many of the variations have different names in different parts of the world.
 
Wikipedia: List of screw drives
The Phillips screw drive (specified as an ANSI Type I Cross Recess and type H in ISO documentation) was created by John P. Thompson, who, after failing to interest manufacturers, sold his design to businessman Henry F. Phillips. Phillips is credited with forming a company (Phillips Screw Company), improving the design, and promoting the adoption of his product.
