A Ferris wheel does have some pretty big rods…
Woman Renews Marriage Vows With Ferris Wheel Named Bruce
Via CNET News reports:
We are approaching the stage of civilization when people are becoming more tolerant of each other’s objects of affections.
The question some philosophers are asking, though, is: “What if that object is an object?”
I confess to have occasionally felt a frisson of affection for inanimate things. They might have been cars, clothes, or the British when they speak.
However, I have never really considered what it would be like to have an exclusive relationship with something that doesn’t talk back, breathe, snore, or tell me to put on a tie.
I therefore thank Gawker for matchmaking me with the latest in Logo TV’s “What!?” documentaries.
This movie features people who are besotted with various mechanical and technological constructions.
For example, if I told you that one woman said: “It was like something pulling me, there was a tug,” what might you think she was referring to?
Well, it was a Ferris wheel called the Sky Diva. This is a Ferris wheel she called Bruce. She’s allowed to do that, because she married it. Um, him. And in the show she renews her vows.
She also feeds Bruce pizza.
