If there is any piece of truly universal wisdom on this small round blue and green planet, it might just be this:
Every being’s gotta eat.
Reason being, eating is a great way to take good care of your (adorable, round, shelled) form.
When you take in nutrients, this helps you stay safe against a certain gang of microscopic infectious marauders that won’t go away (even though nobody likes them).
But eating is also a fantastic way to share immune-boosting “cuteness” with the world.
When you eat and look very cute doing it, other (large, shell-less) beings who might be feeling down in the dumps start to smile. Then they feel better.
Before long they are taking better care of themselves too because they are feeling so much better. And then because they are feeling so much better, they get inspired to take even better care of themselves.
And soon the horrid microscopic marauders have to go away because, try as they might, everyone is so healthy and feels so good they simply refuse to get infected!
