As an example,

A is making a speech:

"..yes, you can simulate a hurricane in a computer but does the computer really feel wetness?"


"Wow, going forward I am going to milk this analogy for all it's worth"

meaning, loosely, "take as much as can be taken".

In your particular example (milking an analogy), though, the relevant action is USE (i.e., to use something as much as you can). In that case, you could go with:


with 使い倒す meaning "to use every bit of / get the most out of".
