30 Licked Sushi Prank

30 mei 2011

Shoppers at the mall are asked to sample some sushi rolls from a sushi stand. The shoppers happily try some of the delicious raw fish – yum, tuna and salmon maki! – but then they start watching how the chef prepares the food. It turns out the chef creates these delicious California rolls by running his tongue up and down the seaweed. Yes, that’s right – he licks them. The prank victims are horrified and disgusted that they just ate food which had been licked first.
