Someone Stole the Letters Spelling "YOLO" From Loyola University

Mar 04, 2014

You only live once. YOLO for short. It's the motto Drake came up with in 2011 that, somehow, remains popular today.

Some Mardi Grad revelers apparently decided that taking this motto to heart -- and making the most out of the one life you've been given -- should involve a healthy dose of vandalism. The unidentified people apparently stopped by Loyola University and stole the large L-O-Y-O letters from the campus's front lawn, local news outlet WDSU reports. The pranksters left behind the L and A, so clearly, they planned to rearrange the pilfered letters to spell out YOLO.

No further details are known, and officials say the school was simply a "victim of Mardi Gras."

If caught, we suspect these Mardi Gras pranksters will be charged with the following crimes: 1) trespassing 2) vandalism 3) theft and, most egregiously, 4) perpetuating "YOLO."

Here's the vandalized sign:
