Nekozushi

“Happiness and the absurd are two sons of the same earth,” said Albert Camus. “They are inseparable.” Indeed, absurdity does have a way of instilling happiness in us. Take, for example, Nekozushi, the brainchild of Japanese company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts (a name that’s equally absurd).

Nekozushi, or Cat Sushi, is exactly what you think it is: a series of felines placed on top of a bed of rice and playfully adorned with props to make them look like different types of sushi. Hooray for absurdity?

Last year a Nekozushi shop opened where you can get your very own Nekozushi postcard or calendar. They even have a buying guide in English. And, no, nothing from the shop is edible.
