Please help me come up with short, funny things to write on a half-pint carton of milk.

I work in a school, delivering lunches to classrooms, among other tasks. I have this one 9 year old kid who hates to drink their milk, so I've been writing funny little messages on their carton to amuse them and at least make them look forward to the milk in one way. To explain what I'm looking for, some recent messages have been "Happy Moooo - nday!", "VOTE MILK!" and "What if it rained milk?" Cheesy humor is totally fine, but gross-out humor would be inappropriate. I haven't got much space to work with (carton is this style
, I write on the space equivalent to the solid red rectangle) so shorter is better. I'll also take your tips for writing with a Sharpie on a waxy surface.
As a side note, I've asked the child in question if they enjoy the notes, or would prefer I stop, and they're happy for them to continue.
[anon because it wouldn't surprise me if we had parents who read MeFi, folks at school know it's me writing the milk messages, and I'd like to keep my username separated from work-related questions]
