Oh Great God of StumbleUpon! You have given me a bounteous morsel to share with my fellow nerds!
Seriously, though. I came across a website of what they called “Epic Obento”. For those who don’t know what “obento” is, obento is a traditional Japanese means of packing portable lunches. A typical obento looks sort of like the following.
A nice, if plain, obento box.
However, some obento are made to look absolutely AMAZING! Perhaps so amazing that I would feel bad about eating them! Check out the following that have come up from the internet, and expect more posts of amazing obento as time goes on. (Maybe if I ever get the gumption, I’ll try my hand at a couple and post the resulting pictures here!)

This isn’t really obento, but to make grilled cheese look like freakin’ Shadow of the Colossus is AMAZING!
