Odd bed-fellows

We all remember the Trinidad & Tobago Express' most excellent coverage of the Englishwoman who married a dolphin earlier this month. Well, the Japanese are well known for wanting to go just one better, and so I'm pleased to re-report that this week a Japanese man tied the electronic knot with a tiny shiny crimson robot. Victor, as the man is known as, that being his name, told reporters that the diminutive bluetooth-bade biped is the "perfect bedfellow", and that his 90 minute lithium-ion battery gives him "plenty of stamina".

The ceremony, held in a secret location believed to be close to JVC's headquarters in balmy Yokohama-city, is rumoured to form the central plotline to a new Spielberg production that begins filming later this year.
