Episode 1???

I mean this is very cute and clever and all but I hope that's a joke.

Yes, and off a big fake coin.

If there are not more episodes, I will be sad, and I will blame you.

Hamster farts.

It's people. The tortillas are made out of people. They're making our food out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them!

Awww! This makes me miss keeping hamsters.

This is not how you make thin hamster.

After this and this, the Hamster Trifecta is in play.

If you want really thin hamster you gotta freeze it first and let it thaw a bit before slicing. Note: I like hamsters and gerbils but they both traumatized me a couple decades ago. Dioramas of Carnage all the way

...and for our purposes, a "hamster-sized Java mouse deer" doesn't count.

The burritos are tiny, but the hamsters appear to be of average size.

Technically they're not eating, they're hoarding. Hams are pathological hoarders that would easily make it onto daytime TV if they were humans.

When I had a ham, I pretty much never saw him actually eat anything. But regularly he would hoard so much food around him in his little sleeping hut that the whole thing would rise upwards and eventually topple over.

Does what it says on the tin

No it doesn't.

a. I only counted one hamster. Different camera angles. Different burritos. But same hamster.

b. What colie just said. It didn't really eat the burritos, just stuffed them into his/her jowls for later, more private, consumption.

Major fail.

I like the part where the hamster ate the burrito.

This is the weirdest episode of Hannibal so far.

Same, hamster

Huh... weird complaints... Apparently people would like seeing "Tiny Hamsters Force-fed Tiny Burritos", or gavée hamster avec petit burrito for those who prefer the more continental term....

I think a tiny bottle of Negra Modelo would have been nice. Hamster does not live on burritos alone, after all.

The apex of human achievement has been reached. We have made special tiny burritos just for hamsters.

No, you can also eat them.

Also, these "burritos" were obviously inferior and shouldn't really be called burritos at all. At least, not by any decent moral human being. They might qualify as being one of those horrible wrap things you can buy at airports when you're sad and desperate and just wish the goddamn plane would arrive so you didn't have to hear the same goddamn sportsbar chatter for another nine hours. Nine hours! It takes less time to build an entirely new plane!

But back to the burritos, they weren't gently seared on the grill so they'd develop just the right level of crisp. That's just the beginning! Oh god, the errors compound themselves! Just thinking about that sort of raw-tortilla atrocity makes a person want to weep. It's errors all the way down.

I am so very angry now. Angry that this video exists and will lead people astray about the true nature of burritos.

I'm sick of all the burrito prescriptivism going on in this thread.

I want to open a cafe where we all eat burritos with hamsters. That would be good, right?

I say you have to think about the consumer. Hamsters don't like sear. And they get plent of crisp from pellets.

Living in the sticks as I do, I rarely have access to good burritos. When I do manage to get my hands on one, this is pretty much exactly how I eat it.

You stick the burrito in your cheek, and then stick another one in the other cheek? And then take them home with you that way?

Oh, sure, until the rats get wise and start wearing tiny disguises.

They might also be good tiny burritos for big humans. It's cooked ingredients wrapped in a gyoza wrapper. Steam, panfry, or deep fry that sucker, and then magic happens. I think they'd be especially cute in a tortilla soup.

I think I have a weekend project now....
