Hamster post of the day has tweetphotos of Japan's hamster bartender.

This is Ginja, the fluffy manager of a cozy little izakaya somewhere in Yachiyo, Japan. Like any izakaya, sake and snacks are plentiful, but unlike most izakayas, Ginja is a hamster and his refreshments are made of plastic and come from mini-toy-maker Re-Ment. Head of social media for the restaurant/Ginja's owner Kosuke Sato has nonetheless amassed a loyal virtual following by using the premise to pretty comedic, mini-Cheers-style effect — it also helps that the hamster is really photogenic.
