I now pronounce you husband and pillow

Last December, my pointless posted a story about a man who married a Nintendo anime character that he fell in love with. This week, we have the true the story of a man in Korea who recently married his pillow.

Lee Jin-gyu has fallen in love with his "dakimakura" which is a large body-sized hugging pillow. The pillow bears the image of his favorite anime character, Fate Testarossa.

For Lee, this is no joke. One of his friends says, “He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere.”'

The 28-year-old Lee takes his pillow-friend with him everywhere. They go to the park and stroll together. They ride amusement park rides together. They even go out to eat at restaurants. Pillow-Testarossa doesn't each much, but she sits patiently in her own chair and enjoys spending time with her pathetic fiancée.

Last week, Lee dressed up his pillow-love in a wedding dress and married her in a special ceremony in front of a local priest.
