What the heck did we just watch?!
The internet, and the rest of the world, love cats…
Much of the world also loves sushi, so some genius company decided to combine them!!
So now we have sushi cats!!
Through the magic of tasty sushi, kitty cuteness and a dash of photoshopping, these sushi cats have been brought to life!
The whole reason for their existence seems to be so people can buy pictures and post cards of them and things like that.
Though honestly we just like the video and song! LOLz!
Check out the video (above) to see some sushi cats in action.

We didn't know octopi could bite!
We thought they only could suction cup onto you, leaving a couple of red circle marks maybe.
We had no idea an octopus could bite you!!
Regardless of whether or not he knew it, Eli Roth found out the hard way that yes, octopi can indeed bite you.

EEWWWWW….why can't they leave our food alone!!!
El Lay chefs Kiyoshiro Yamamoto and Susumu Ueda could be headed to jail for a loooooooong time after they were caught serving Sei whale meat to customers.
Sei whales are protected in the States by the Marine Mammal Protection Act, so serving whale meat in the City of Angels is a BIG no-no.

In Japan, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Sushi-Zanmai, a Japanese sushi chain, bought a 593-pound bluefin tuna.
And it cost him $736,000!!!!
It broke the record for most expensive fish ever sold, with the previous record only being $416,000.
Bluefin tuna are government controlled when it comes to how many can be caught each year and this one was particularly huge so that's why the price was so high.
On his reason for spending so much for a single fish, Kimura said:

This is an interesting promotion.
A restaurant in Smyrna Beach, Florida is offering free sushi to anybody who has survived a shark attack.
If you've been nibbled on by a shark, then YOU can nibble on some free shark rolls at Kaiju Sushi and Rice Balls.
Co-owner Dekker Dreyer, who has survived five attacks himself, is excited about the campaign. He says:
"The response has been tremendous. [Shark attacks] are something we've grown up with."
In fact, local surfer Joey G. showed proof of his shark attack and ordered a complimentary Jamaican-seasoned mako shark sushi roll. Dreyer says:
"He had the whole package. He had a scar on his leg and he actually had a video on YouTube of himself on the local news being taken away for first aid."
What a unique idea. Might as well eat the shark before the shark eats you!

Really big tuna.
A 754 pound tuna sold for a record 32.49 million yen, or nearly $396,000, in Tokyo on Wednesday.
Imagine reeling that one in on your rod!
The ginormous fish was sold at the first auction of the year at the world's largest wholesale fish market.
The tuna was bought by a pair of entrepreneurs who own a sushi restaurant chain in and around Tokyo.
The whopping price tag translates into about $526 per pound!
Good luck finding people to pay that.
It might not be that hard though, with the Japanese being the worlds largest consumer of seafood.
Fatty bluefin or "o-toro" here, is the the countries most sought after tuna and can sell for about $24 a piece at high-end sushi restaurants.
Not a pound, a piece!
We'll stick to the california roll.
