You know that old codger who's always yelling things like "you can marry anybody these days!" angrily at the TV? They need to change their irate rant from "anybody" to "anything" because quite a few kooky folks have actually married inanimate objects, and the things they've married are getting stranger and stranger.
A young woman from Jacksonville, Florida named Noorul Mahjabeen Hassan, who prefers to be called Fractal Tetris Huracan, says she's been in love with the video game Tetris for over 20 years.
She sleeps with the NES cartridge every night, plays about 12 hours a day and after a bad breakup with a graphing calculator she's ready to tie the knot with Tetris:
‘I think Tetris is so beautiful, he is about perfection and he stimulates your mind. Physically I get that feeling that people in relationships get – that you know they are the right one.
‘I love him so much and get an immense sense of satisfaction with him. I have a strong connection with him and have invested so much in him.’
‘I want to say I’m married to Tetris and have a legitimate ceremony,’ says Fractal. ‘I want everybody to be there.
‘I feel like that would be an official thing which would set it in stone and say “I love you and want to prove it to you” by making it permanent and calling myself Mrs Tetris.’
