This is my favorite episode of the series. It's probably because it answers such a basic question. It's probably the most asked question out there. Well, except for "Why is the sky blue?". I don't know if chips are more important than paint. I mean, paint can be used on any surface.
Would I rather live in a world without chips or a world without paint? Off the top of my head, I'd probably say chips. Without paint, things would just look ugly. We can find alternatives to chips like pretzels or popcorn. Those are much healthier anyway.
