And For The Weird News Of The Day...

Far be it from me to be the one calling anyone else a little... *cough* off.... but this one just takes the cake!

Man marries pillow

Yes, boys and girls, the world has gone absolutely nuts.


Lee Jin-gyu fell for his 'dakimakura' - a kind of large, huggable pillow from Japan, often with a picture of a popular anime character printed on the side.


It's a PILLOW. A PILLOW. A P-I-L-L-O-W!! What kind of a ***^%#!! idiot marries linen?

This is the part that absolutely kills me:

after fitting it out with a wedding dress for the service in front of a local priest.


Forget the guy needing psychiatric help, someone lock the Priest away for even thinking about performing the ceremony, much less going through it!

See, I told you it takes the cake. I think I am finally coming to the realization that I'm not the one psychotic, the rest of the world is!

Lol. I thought that was kind of weird myself.

But I have to ask... what can we do?

Obviously he's kind of a social misfit, otherwise he wouldn't want to marry an inanimate object that won't yell at him, be mean to him or chastise him for liking things that other 'normal' people don't like.

While I don't share the same kind of nerdiness (nerditity?) that makes me want to hug, kiss or do more to a pillow, I kinda understand.

I always thought I was a social misfit, and I managed to marry a human! lol Perky and cookie cutter, I am not. ;)

Wow. I no longer feel bad about being almost 30 and still single. At least I didn't marry my pillow, you know?

At least it won't hog the bed, and it'll be super nice to snuggle with. Easy to clean too... and his wife won't need to go shopping with his hard earned money!

I wonder if he will buy pillow cases every once in awhile to get her some new clothes...

I am thinking too much into this.

That is just too much, lol. A pillow. What would make you say, hmmmm I really like this pillow I think I will marry it? I love bacon, but I don't want to marry it, lol.

Storm, The Psychotic Housewife said...

Alison, you made me spit soda everywhere with your comment! LOL!!!

1stopmom - now I want bacon. Mmmmm....

Lin said...

"I love you, Pillowy!!!"

Weird. Just plain weird. But then again, he'd win all the arguments about what side of the bed to sleep on.

Uh, I really think this is a ten on the weird-o-meter. Believe it or not, this story actually made the front page on MSN.
On a brighter note, I think this guy will probably be number one on the zombie menu :)
