Why are alliterations so alluring?

In article by Andrew1 Comment

Rest easy, I’m not going to litter this post with a bevy of unnecessary alliterations.  After all, alliterations are beautiful constructs, not meant to be abused by a hack.  A quick google search led me to this sweet little poem and this unreadable mess.  Given a thesuaras and enough time, I’m certain anyone can string an alliterative sentence together.

For me the real joy is to drop a clever clause in real life.  I’m not sure if this is normal or a Sheldon Cooper like obsession.  Let me know your thoughts about alliterations below.
