Super Terrific Japanese Thing: Weiner Shapers

?If you any kind of fan of Japan and its weirdness, you’re probably aware of bento boxes — Japanese packed lunch that are often made with the food shaped into designs and so forth. Generally, the most common item is to cut the ends of a hot dog so it looks like it has tentacles, and is thus an octopus, but now two marvelous devices have expanded the field by allowing you to shape your weiner into a crab or a penguin. These things are both less than $3 over at J-List at this very moment. If you’re disappointed by the lack of extreme horror or bizarreness in today’s STJT… c’mon, man. They’re called Weiner Shapers. I’m not made of stone. (Via 16bit)
