Japan fetishist pillow love: THE TRUTH!
Tee hee. Seems the New York Times has ruffled a few feathers with this fun article, about some loser who is in love with a pillowcase that has a pic of a busty anime character on it. The loser's feathers aren't ruffled, who presumably wanted to tell the world of his love, no it's the Japan explainers (of whom Our Man is a modest example) who have had their stuffing knocked out. Just how endemic is this loser's fetish? Probably not much, Our Man would venture, as he has a very straight-forward relationship with his pillow (ie none), as do all right-thinking Abikans. The equally straight-thinking folk at Mutant Frog ripped the article to shreds here. Our Man would just caution though, it's no less freaky than the anime character love-in over at Danny Choo, probably the most popular Japan blog, ever. Perhaps we should all just sleep on it, eh readers?
