Bubble Wrap?

I was at a birthday party for my niece tonight. My niece received a whole lot o' presents. One of those gifts were wrapped in bubble wrap. Bubble wrap is included with the more delicate gifts to ensure a safe trip from factory to the recipient. Her older sister quickly claimed the bubble wrap, and began popping each individual air bubble. After a few minutes of concentrated popping she looked up and asked me " What's up with bubble wrap?" I had no answer. I knew what she was saying. Many a time I've found myself attentively popping bubble wrap for no good reason at all. I don't have a problem with bubble wrap, yet every time I see it I become a cold and calculating air bubble killer. What is the crime that bubble wrap has committed against humanity that we can't stand seeing it whole and complete, free of popped bubbles?
