    I wager 1,000 credits that the Porgs are just an annoying food source. I haven't read the rules do I give Wuher my Loot? @Duke Groundrunner

    First step go to casino cantina thread and make your bet official. Transfer Wuher your money and make a note about the nature of your bet. Hopefully someone takes you on your bet. And if you're really lucky someone might even double down against you. To get paid, after the movie comes out Whoever wins gets the total amount bet.

    The purpose of porgs and porg toys is a commercial one. Their sole purpose is to sit quietly on shop shelves and look cute and adorable to kids and man-children. This is their only purpose, much like BB-8 was in TFA.

    Money will be exchanged to "own" said porg toys and Disney's "grateful" shareholders will be recieving your money within the next year so they can pay for more injections of botox into their surgically "enhanced" faces and other body parts. Little of your money will be going to the poorly paid and overworked Chinese factory worker who actually made the toy and the toy probably sells for more than the worker earns in a month.

    Meanwhile, the porg toy will either be quickly chewed, broken, swallowed or lost by the kids and other porgs will be purchased as a replacement to further increase the profits.

    Or the porg toy will be permanently sealed in its original mint condition box inside specially-made hermetically sealed glass display cases in the man-childrens private "museum" room/basement/vault of Star Wars toys (or "merchandise collection" as they prefer to call it), never to be played with, in the "hope" that such mass-produced plastic merchandise will somehow magically increase in value in later years to come....

    The real purpose of Porgs are as follows:

    1. To know there is a heaven
    2. To know there is love
    3. To know there is cuteness in the world
    4. To know that there is a food source
    5. To know that you're higher on the food chain
    6. To know that when you're hungry, heaven is a tasty Porg that you'll love even if it is cute.
