But in the TV commercials they pronounced it "no tears" as in no crying, and depicted kids wiping it away from their eyes with no problem.

This is a little too simplistic and doesn't accurately describe anything. Pumpkins and zucchini are squash but can technically be considered fruit. But then again so are beans, corn, coffee, and cucumbers. Strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries are aggregate fruits. Bananas, coffee, pistachios, peaches, and olives are drupes. Well....technically coffee is the pit of the coffee fruit....but still weird. Basically if you are eating the STRUCTURE of a plant, then it is a vegetable. Celery is the stalk, carrots are the roots, lettuce is the leaves...and so on. If the plant produces flowers through pollination, the result is a fruit regardless of what it looks like or how it tastes. Science is cool.

It all is about wording...why not rather put it like this: "We ensure warmness and cozyness through special sleepting cothes, which mitigate our lack of fur, and lay in the most relaxed way, being far away from comatose but rather providing our body and minds with the means to get adapted for another amazing day to come."
