Big In Japan

New from the folks that brought you Godzilla and instant ramen in a cup: a pillow that won't betray you. You know, in case worrying about pillow betrayal is something that keeps you awake at night.

It is like a teddy bear for grownups. I'm a little surprised hey have only sold 1000 in six months. Not such a good return.

I'm surprised they've sold as many as they have-- personally, I'd find sleeping up against a disembodied arm a little macabre.

Creep-city.

Ick. I guess this is the physical manifestation of Oxygen's "Instant Adoring Boyfriend."

Your comment about pillow betrayal just reminded me of the Squeeze song, "Maidstone." (I know, everything reminds me of a Squeeze, Duran Duran or Pearl Jam song.) But there's a line that goes, "I pull the pillow to my side and imagine it is her." So I guess if you can have an imaginary relationship with a pillow, you could start imagining that it's out there cheating on you.

How long until the battery operated version arrives on the scene?

What if your boyfriend comes into your bedroom, sees you sleeping with the boyfriend pillow, and then suffocates you with it? Talk about "pillow betrayal."

That would be ironic. Maybe. I'm not sure. Maybe.
