i can be cheezburger?

I have a pleasant suspicion that there are some people stopping by from the glorious icanhascheezburger.com. Hi, there! Do I have something for you.

What do you say to little plush cats dressed up like cheeseburgers? And fries, milkshakes, bakery treats. . . all the good things you want to pick up and nibble, as if you needed any persuasion to nibble a kitten. (You don't. Admit it. We're all friends here.)

Now imagine these things are made up in that extra-cute, clean, tiny Japanese fashion, and you have Nyan Nyan Nyanko. As Wikipedia defines them, "Nyankos are small kittens that enjoy mimicking various items, generally edible items." And items which provide illustration of how the culture lives and eats. Apparently they ask not to be eaten by anyone who penetrates their cunning disguises.

Gorgeous, adorable, and Japanese language only page of them here. A place to buy some here. Catcheeseburger only $79.99. Want fries with that?

Has anyone bothered to translate the Japanese? Better try, before you go hyping this!
