Staff working at Nippori Station in Tokyo have managed to stuff numerous bento boxes into the staff kitchen microwave.
The microwave was crammed to full capacity with each bento box in direct contact with at least two other bentos.
“There wasn’t much room to breathe in there with a lot of sweat being transferred from one bento to the next,” said one train conductor.
“Unfortunately, the vegetables on the edges came out piping hot while most of the chunky meat bits were still cold.”
The spaghetti underneath the crumbed pork and chicken also struggled to attract any electromagnetic radiation.
“I still don’t know why there was a plum in the middle of Tomi’s rice, but that came out reasonably warm – not that you would want a plum heated anyway.”
