Haven't you heard?  That's what all the alien abductions are all about.  
They're taking statistical samples. 

In fact, I bet right now there's a bunch of aliens frowning at their 
monitors, reading their alien mailing lists. 

"Help!  My humans are breeding, but I don't have anywhere to put the babies! 
Will the parents eat them?" 

"The TastyKake is sufficient as a snack treat/occasional reward, but I have 
found the Twinkie to be much more effective.  Do you think there's a trace 
element found in Twinkies which the humans crave?  Or do they just prefer 
the advertising?"

been using an O2 reactor, but my humans kept getting wedged between it and 
the wall, so I think I'll switch to an airstone."
