Some people cook food, some photograph it, and some people turn it into elaborate crocheted hats and wear it on their heads. OK, well, really just this one person.

A  22-year-old Australian Phil Ferguson has found Instafame with his food-themed knitted headpieces, and for good reason … they’re totally amazing.

Drawing inspiration from emojis and other popular foods, Ferguson knits and models his hats with a hilariously deadpan expression on his Instagram, which as amassed over 40,000 followers.

His first food-themed hat — a hamburger that he knit while working in a burger shop in Melbourne — was an instant hit. Because if there’s any combination of things that millennial Instagrammers lose their minds over, it’s food, crocheted things, and emojis.

Since then, Ferguson has created and modeled crocheted culinary creations ranging from donuts to eggplants, popsicles to sushi rolls.

While there are so many questions (so very many…) we’d like to ask Ferguson, the first one would obviously be, how can we get one of our own?
