Hamsters are the cutest. And, when they try to be people, the adorbz is off the charts. Twitter user Kawanabesatou knows this, and has created a series of his hamsters posing as bartenders and sushi chefs. Two sakis, rodent!

Watch This Sushi Conveyor Belt Become A DJ Booth

Sitting at a traditional sushi restaurant can be awfully quiet, and there’s hardly ever any techno to help get the sushi party started.

Red Bull, with help from hip-hop producer Just Blaze and L.A. DJ TOKiMONSTA, created a fully-functional sequencer from an existing sushi conveyor belt. Using the actual sushi that’s slowly making its way along the track, the plate’s colors trigger its own sick beat. Sushi party, started.

Space Sushi Launches Raw Fish and Rice Into The Hemispheres and Beyond

Space Sushi is a Twitter account that appears to exist for no other reason, other than to show raw fish and rice dangling in space.

The fictional government agency displays all kinds of makis and hand rolls above the stratosphere. No mention of what the point of all this is… but it does make me want a sushi lunch while watching 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Horse Sushi Goes To Great Lengths

Just when we thought that we’d seen it all with Ramen sushi, sushi socks, and California Rolls — along comes another questionable sushi-related item.

Horse meat sushi is brought to us by Japanese restaurant Nikuzushi, who forgoes the traditional raw fish and specializes in meat and vinegared rice. The horse sushi is available in a few varieties — such as lean meat, belly, and seaweed-wrapped diced meat.

So if you’re looking to win at dinner, this might be the place to show up at. Let it ride.

Ramen Sushi

Why be traditional and use boring rice for your sushi, when ninety-nine cents and some boiling water will get you Ramen Sushi?

The Vulgar Chef realizes this, and wraps his raw fish with budget noodles and bacon for good measure. See the technique and recipe here.
