They also have the ability to make you extremely thirsty but that is totally besides the point.
They create a warm, inviting atmosphere...
...for humans and non-humans alike.
And they taste exceptionally good.
They provide a sense of normalcy when everything else in your world is not quite normal anymore.
They make grandpas seem like they are not so far away.
And they are the perfect nutritional supplement for stuffed seals made in China.
I bet you didn't know that.
