The Perfect Boyfriend? 

I saw this one linked on NewsFeedOnline and had to laugh. It is for a Japanese product, aimed at single women, called the Boyfriend Pillow:

Japanese designers have come up with what they claim is the perfect solution for the unattached woman - the boyfriend pillow.

IOL says the pillow is an ideal sleeping partner because it doesn't snore, hog the duvet - or sleep around.

Each model comes with two shirts in blue and pink, that can be washed and ironed by the dutiful 'girlfriend'.

And one model also works as an alarm, by shaking to alert the woman when it is time to get up.

So is that "shaking alert" really an alarm clock... or is it more of a vibrating function for "other purposes"? I imagine if they were to market the shaking/vibrating a little more, their demand would go up even more. Either way, I don't think I'm in too much danger of being replaced... at least I hope.

Comments:

That boyfriend pillow is pretty sad....naturally they'd make it so the "girlfriend" would have to do it's laundry...not so perfect after all. I put you back on my links, in my copy, cut, & paste haste, I missed your link.....forgive me.
