Longest Sushi Roll in the World Is Missing One Important Ingredient

giant sushiWho wants sushi? Because I've found a giant sushi roll long enough to feed probably everyone who is online at the moment. It's a full mile-and-a-half long and made from 1.5 tons of rice, 500 kg of cucumbers, 14 thousand pieces of seaweed, and 25 kg of sesame. And you'll never guess where it was made -- in Russia!

Yup, a mall called META has broken the Guinness World Record for longest sushi. I like to tell people I can almost eat my weight in sushi, but after seeing this I'm starting to think I've finally seen enough my limit. That roll is impressive, and yet, I have questions. Many, many questions.


First of all, no fish?!? Does this really even qualify as sushi if it's just cucumber? That doesn't even make it a California roll. Throw in some sour cream and vodka shots and what you really have there is a vegetarian Baltic snack. It's still impressive, I guess, but I'd be way more impressed if it actually contained fish.

Secondly, how many people did it take? Because in the video (below) I just see about 4 guys rolling and a couple others doing some sort of assembly-line work with the other ingredients. Apparently it took them 15 hours! Wow, tired little sushi-rolling fingers. Obviously they're experts so they've got this rolling thing down, but still -- you're rolling and you're making the whole thing stick together! That takes some mad skill.

And finally, by the time you get finished making the whole thing, isn't the "first" end of the sushi roll kind of dried out? Who ate that? Because it looks like there's a whole mall full of people standing in line for some samples. Were there any leftovers? It's funny, but all of a sudden I'm not in the mood for sushi anymore.

Would you want to try a sample of this giant sushi roll?
