EDITORIAL: Why I Stole The Chocolate Milk Label From The Back Of The DH In 2015


There’s an old adage that people often say: “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk label for free?”

That’s pretty much all that went into my decision to steal the milk label back in 2015.

Had I known that they didn’t have another 5”x 5” chocolate milk magnet lying around in the back closet, would I still have stolen it? Maybe. Maybe not.

Look, I’m not saying I regret it, but it’s kind of a gut check to see that two and a half years later they still haven’t replaced it. In 2016 they slapped just the white label strip that said “chocolate milk” on the chrome surface. I’m glad they found another magnet (albeit a white milk label) that they can just put the label over now. It looks a little better, but my impact is still visible.

And to those who have asked, no it’s not still hanging prominently on the mini fridge in my dorm. I went to a Twenty One Pilots concert last year and had to move the magnet down after I got a commemorative sticker for the fridge. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it this summer after I move out. We’ll see.
