Because the delightfully creepy sausage people have all been eaten, it was time for someone else in Japan to come up with a new way to entertain themselves (and the internet) by creatively carving up cocktail wieners for lunch. This time that someone was Japanese Twitter user Yoshida_xxx who figured out how to transformed the little red sausages into miniature versions of a giant isopod and then thoughtfully created an adorable diagram so that we can make them too.

Japan has taken the humble hot dog and turned it into an adorably creepy lunchtime snack. According to RocketNews24, they’re called “sausage people”, which somehow makes them even creepier. These little red weenie folk appear all too eager to be boiled in soup, nestled in sandwiches or posed in cute bento meals.

There are undoubtedly children and adults throughout Japan entertaining each other by performing midday meal skits with their smiling sausage people. We know we would be.
