“If we’re not supposed to eat late-night snacks, why is there a light in the refrigerator?”

"If we’re not supposed to eat late-night snacks, why is there a light in the refrigerator?” (or, “If we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?") is a jocular line that has been printed on many posters. “If we’re not supposed to eat late-night snacks, why is there a light in the refrigerator?” has been cited in print since at least 1999 and is of unknown authorship.
