With Friends Like These...

A few years back I saw 'news' report on a mini-phenomenon call Real Doll. I'm guessing I had the channel set to Showcase - but I digress. I remember having 4 reactions to the story:

  1. That artist/inventor has done something amazing!
  2. Ummm.... those dolls are kinda hot! Do they really, you know, work?
  3. Who is so lonely that they'd shell out $5000 for one of those?
  4. So, is there a website?

In the final analysis, my thinking has been that Real Doll is a fascinating (albeit, dark) corner of Western culture - but the members of that community must be among the most pathetically lonely people on Earth.

I was wrong. I pray this business isn't making money, but I'm probably wrong about that, too.
