Oh sure, train them to eat the viscera out of tiny mannequins. If they ever manage to grow to about 1200% of their current size no-one's going to laughing, are they?

Hamsters I can take or leave, but +1 for the title.

Necro-nom-nom-nomicon, eh? That looks strangely like my copy.

Aw, I'm kinda disappointed that those appear to be Syrian/golden hamsters, which are actually the largest of the domesticated hamsters. Compare, for example, the measurements on a one of them (110-130 mm in length and 120-125 grams in weight) with a Chinese hamster (80-120 mm, and 30-45 grams) or a Roborovski (45-50 mm and 20-25 grams).

I'm also curious about how they've managed to have multiple Syrians anywhere near each other without murder breaking out -- maybe they're all so distracted by the incredibly great noms?

tl;dr: this was cute, but these are tinier, and for my money, cuter.

I made my husband watch this (by putting it fullscreen and turning the monitor towards him) and we both lol'd.

+1 for the H.P. Lovecraft reference. Although I doubt he would have enjoyed this video very much, as hamsters play an insignificant role in his oeuvre.
