What is the purpose of Tarantino's cameos?

Just wondering what peoples opinions are on why Tarantino makes cameos in his films? Any and all opinions welcome. Thanks

In my opinion it's just sort of an "iconic" thing to do. Hitchcock did it, Polanski did it, hell even Spielberg did it. Now combine that with the fact that Tarantino is also an actor, and the answer is a double shot of "why not?" with a lemon twist.

Perhaps a better question would be: "Which is the best and worst Tarantino cameo"?
