Paging Jessica Rabbit

Who says marriage isn't comical?

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".

Comic books are immensely popular in Japan, with some fictional characters becoming celebrities or even sex symbols.

Marriage is meanwhile on the decline as many young Japanese find it difficult to find life partners.

Taichi Takashita launched an online petition aiming for one million signatures to present to the government to establish a law on marriages with cartoon characters.

Within a week he has gathered more than 1000 signatures through.

"I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world," he wrote.

If he gets his cartoon wife to immigrate to this dimension, how will the couple prove the consummated the relationship? Officials do ask about that subject.

If I were a five year old, this idea would have been more than appealing. I once had a major crush on Jiminy Cricket.

I was not behind this idea until you mentioned Jessica Rabbit. Now ... Dammit. I'm confused!

Okay, now: Does anybody still think the "slippery slope" arguments about same-sex marriage are excessive?

This guy really wants to be two dimensional I can think of a couple of ways. Maybe go stand on the bullet train tracks, or lie down in front of a pavement roller. That should do it.

Should anything actually come of this it will create a host of legal problems.

It will certainly require the legalization of polygamy, or more likely polyandry, as there are probably not enough hot cartoon chicks to go around.

Failing that, I see an extreme mail order wife business springing up where creators auction their creations off to the highest bidder.

And what about those characters already in a monogamous 2d/2d relationship?

At number 4. Not in the least, because the hidden argument in favor takes place all the time with action.

Well, he does have a point - I mean, have you seen the sorts of babes who populate Japanese anime and manga?

On the other hand, and I am aware this will peg me as some sort of radical intolerant extremist, once we redefine marriage so that it is no longer between two actual human beings, where does that leave us?
