Today We Want: FISH-EGG SUSHI SMARTPHONE STAND
And We Can Have One!
Looking in from without, the Japanese sense of humor is...an acquired taste. Like the language and culture, it's often highly contextual and quite literally can't be understood until you know what seems like 200-300 inside jokes. But, there's one area where Japanese humor really shines for any audience: When Japan goes all meta on itself.
It's not a self-deprecating humor, per-se, but even the most revered aspects of Japanese culture can be jabbed and poked at for laughs. Food, particularly that which is unique to Japanese culture, is truly honored and considered essential and fundamental to the Japanese character - but it's not off limits.
Which is why, if you just have to have some very realistic looking fish eggs on your desk, Tokyo Otaku Mode has you covered:
Salted Salmon Roe Sushi Plate Smartphone Stand
TOM’s product description:
“What a delectable-looking plate of salted salmon roe sushi. Wait…it’s actually a smartphone stand! This stand looks just like a real piece of salted salmon roe sushi, even down to each individual, glistening roe. The nori seaweed wrapper and the garnish of ginger even look good enough to eat, but we’d advise against it! This is quite possibly the best way for foodies to stand up their iPhones while surfing the net or watching a movie!”
