Which is it? Somewhere in my internet wanderings I read that 'obento' is more respectful. Well far be it from me to disrespect Mr. Bento or his little (rapidly growing!) family of bento-babe boxes...
Here's Jan's Mr. Bento of the day:

My bento is similar:
but with Mr. Honey Tangerine added, for the monkey in me!
It will be a long day beginning with Nietzsche and ending with a budget meeting. Give me strength, bento!!!
