When the munchies hit, they hit hard. One second you're sitting on your bean bag – bead curtain tinkling from the breeze through the open window – and then next you're ravenous.
It's hard to explain the sensation of munchies. It isn't a standard hunger craving; even the healthiest eaters turn to boxes of pizza rolls, greasy burgers, and chicken wings. Veterans of the munchies have graduated to creating their own types of food – food that would make a sober person queasy but hits the spot unlike anything else when you're high. These memes come closest to nailing that experience.
