Tako Phone Stand

tako-standThe Japanese are an admirable people group, what with their resilience to adversity, not to mention their legendary cleanliness as well as punctuality. Another aspect of them would be the obsession with all things cute – you get to see plastic versions of a particular food or dish in front of food stalls, so that you have a visual idea of what the actual thing would look like when served. It looks almost good enough to eat, actually, and what you see above is not someone who is too poor to purchase a phone stand, but rather, a Tako Phone Stand that is a plastic representation of a Japanese takosen – an octopus dumpling complete with eggs, sauce, mayo, and fish flakes, sandwiched between a pair of crackers. Except that it is meant to help prop up your smartphone, now how about that?
