MAN TO MARRY HIS PILLOW
Tuesday August 25th, 2009
It would seem that our American church organist from a week or two ago is not alone in her quest to get hitched to her favourite inanimate object. Although at least a carnival attraction actually moves and is probably exciting. Consider the plight of Okeke Ikechukwu. The Lagos based labourer has popped the question to his pillow.
The 26 year old Nigerian suffers from a chronic stammer and has found it impossible to form relationships, therefore he has plumbed for marrying his closest companion and “ideal mate”. Mr Ikechukwu had this to say about his bride to be 'Since I am a stutterer, ladies have always laughed at me whenever I try to talk to them… I have needs, and so I have taken to sleeping with my pillow in my arms ever since I was 16. I have grown to fall in love with it, and I intend to spend the rest of my life with it.'
He added that ‘unlike a woman, the pillow would cost him little or nothing to maintain for the rest of its life.’
Who says romance is dead?
