Why the heck is there a cat rolled in a sushi you might ask and we’d reply, we have absolutely no fucking idea.
A Japanese company called Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts made a photographic series of settings that combine cats, other bizarre objects and sushi. The cats are placed on stacks of rice, wrapped in pieces of seaweed, while cucumbers, backpacks and blankets complete each weird setting.
The funny props are meant to closely resemble different kinds of raw fish and sushi combos. “We know the rule of Sushi – fish on top of rice.
On the other hand we know the rule cats eat fish. Cats sit on rice, where fish is supposed to be – why? Contradiction and mystery in this world is always center of the criptic questions among Japanese zen monks. And this is another Zen question -why Cats sit on rice instead of fish, not eating them? – the graet zen question, which proves the magical power of Sushi Cats,” is written on their website.
I love my job.
