|Mmmm, sepia sushi.|
- The Elvis: a banana filled with peanut butter, stuck through the center of a Twinkie, then cut into maki rolls, individually battered and deep fried.
- The Wal-Mart: Vienna sausage, pork rinds and Cheez Whiz. Wrapped in bologna instead of nori.
In addition to actual sushi, this place also sent down the belt a series of little printed advertisements for items they made hot to order in the back kitchen: agedashi tofu, takoyaki, etc. And every now and then a bottle of ramune or a bowl of edamame or a fancy fruit cup would wend its way around the belt. Whimsy took over my brain and I began to imagine other items coming around: a small bottle of bubble blow, a mini-set of magic markers, some of those little mushroom-shaped cookies, a plethora of bouncy balls. You know they'd sell. It would definitely be a hit with young families... though the sushi chef might not be so enthralled with the idea the first time an errant bouncy ball came flying out of the sky to smash his perfectly-formed caterpillar roll.
In fact, why don't they put a conveyor belt like this in a toy store? Put it up at adult height if you want, and let the little bijou goodies wander past the shoppers' eyes. Are you listening to me, Lego?
