Scorned Japanese Wives get Revenge on husbands and kids with Brilliant “Shikaeshi Bento” Art

Maybe in part because Japan is still a country with a lot of gender bias and discrimination, it seems like Japanese women have gotten really good over the years at the art of passive-aggressive revenge.

If the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then we guess it makes sense that the stomach is also the quickest way to metaphorically kick your man right in the balls when he gets out of line. Knowing this, many Japanese wives have taken to creating outrageously offensive and/or purposefully disgusting bento lunch boxes for their husbands and kids that have stepped out of line:

“Crime and Punishment.” (w/ giant box of uncooked rice.)
