What do a tombstone salesman in Chiba Prefecture’s Yachiyo City in Japan and a bar have in common? You may say plenty, seeing as how that seems like kind of a downer of a job, but the answer that we’re looking for is a hamster.

Before you assume we’ve lost our marbles, meet Ginji the hamster bartender! A regular feature on his guardian (the aforementioned tombstone salesman) Kosuke Sato’s Twitter account, Ginji is the manager of an izakaya, or bar, and can be seen serving up sake and plating up rice. His establishment is quite popular, with over 51 thousand followers checking in to see the sweet sommelier in action.

What does it say about us that we would totally patronize this place like the regulars on Cheers? It says we’re awesome, that’s what. Here are a few highlights of Ginji’s day-to-day life as our favorite, tiny barkeep.
