Cute Little Sausage People Could Soon Be Taking Over Your Lunch

Whether you find these little sausage people cute or creepy is no matter… They are currently a hot food trend in Japan. And, if we’ve learned anything about food trends, is that they usually last forever, if not longer.

Officially called ‘so-se-jin’, a play on the Japanese words for ‘sausage’ (so-se-ji) and ‘people’ (jin) – they’re created with a few simple cuts, and when cooked, will form arms and the expression of your choice.

I, for one, welcome our new sausage overlords. And you should consider including them in lunch to instantly add some adorbz. Or, to freak out the kids.

“The Scream” by Edvard Munch

Sausage In Art is a clever and very meaty project by photographer Karsten Wegener, designer Silke Baltruschat and food stylist Raik Holst. The series, which recreates famous works of art, does it using the medium of deli meats.

Whether it’s Koon’s “Balloon Dog” rendered in hot dog, or Hirst’s dot series replaced with rows of pork-based cold cuts — the series will give you a new appreciation of modern art. Just pass the mustard.

Volkswagen Sausage and Ketchup Exists

German automaker Volkswagen is apparently also in the sausage and condiment business. While Jettas and GTIs continue to roll down the assembly line at their main plant in Wolfsburg, Germany — the makers of the “people’s car” are also producing and packaging their very own currywurst and ketchup.

Although not available for the worldwide masses, the currywurst and ketchup are available at most German VW factories, and visitors to Autostadt.
