For the "world keeps getting stranger" file:
A JAPANESE man has enlisted hundreds of people in a campaign to allow marriages between humans and cartoon characters, saying he feels more at ease in the "two-dimensional world".
[. . .]
"I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world," he wrote.
"However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?"
Yeah, darn those limits of "present-day technology." If all he's interested in is length and width with no depth, I can introduce him to a few women I've met in bars.
