Mr. Bento Porn

One of my friends told me that she considered buying a Mr. Bento for her homemade lunches. Mr. Bento? what’s that? A profound device for keeping food, hot or cold, for hours and hours on end. She told me that she looked at Mr. Bento porn. I was afraid to ask what that meant…but I too became addicted.

Devotees of Mr. Bento proudly snap their lunches and post to Flickr to show the world what they are eating. The thing that makes me lose my mind is that people make little notes on their photos. These tiny commentaries reflect triumph, disappointment, or relief about their lunches. Who knew that storing vitamins could ever be so cute – yes, why not put them into a Hello Kitty container? I encourage you to get totally, and unrepentantly addicted to Mr. Bento Porn.

P.S. check out Mr. Bento Rodeo too…where else can you read, “besides the seaweed salad, i brought a riceball sprinkled with sesame seeds, sesame jimmies if you will, and some more potato soup and… a blood orange, which was a tart little mofo.”!?!?!?!?!

P.P.S. You can see the Flickr Mr. Bento Porn Pool here.
