Man marries.....

Well, it's Easter and what better way to celebrate than to enjoy a binge drink and consider last week’s show. 
Genius story number one this week:  man marries pillow. 
That’s right, man marries pillow.  And not just any pillow.  One with a picture of cartoon character on it.  Which makes it all ok.  Korean Lee Jin-Gyu has now dated, fallen in love with, dressed in a wedding gown, married and one assumes consummated his relationship to a pillow.
And what was Pete’s insightful take on this?  “How did the pillow say its vows?”.  Priceless.  In the great tidal wave of wrongness about this story, Pete went for the legal technicalities angle. 
Thought.  On the wedding night, the honeymoon suite would have had its own pillows.  Would that make it an orgy? 
Genius story number 2:  doctor 'cures' blind man, by giving him gherkins laced with LSD. 
It’s actually a great idea.  Take a blind person, add mind-bending vision inducing drugs, announce they’re cured.  A genius, if rather short term idea.  Just tell me one thing.  Why gherkins? 
Not so genius story.  To round off the show, myself and HRH Victoria Murphy went head-to-head in Pete’s real/unreal Take-A-Break story challenge.  As we all know, Take-A-Breaks stories involve the trials and tribulations of the nation’s losers.  Murphy showed an uncanny ability to empathise with them, romping home 2-1.  No hard feelings, honest.
