Every once in awhile BBC America airs some GREAT (and disturbing) documentaries. My favorite, by fair, was the one about men who purchased synthetic, or real, dolls. These dolls are life sized dolls, with orifices, and you’ll be shocked to hear the dudes were creeps. The one who takes the cake, however, is this dude named Davecat. You’ll be surprised to hear he still lived in his parents’ home…in the basement. He claimed (and still does) to be in loved with his doll, Sidore.
He was recently featured in an episode of My Strange Addiction. Apparently, he and his doll are now “married”. Not quite sure how that happens. AND both he AND his doll have twitter accounts. Being the crazy person I am, I’ve decided to follow both of them. Obviously her account is crazier than his because, well, she’s a fucking doll. Last time I checked, dolls aren’t alive and they can’t tweet.
The beauty of the whole thing is you can submit questions to her and she will respond to you!! Yesterday I was hanging out with Jersey Bell and Oingo Boingo and reading her answers to them. One person asked her if she and Davecat ever got into fights. My first thought was, why are you asking a doll a question? And then I kind of went to the way of, she’s a doll and dolls don’t talk back when you argue with them. Boy! Was I wrong! Apparently, early on in their relationship, they used to bicker a lot. I mean, can you imagine this scene? Him sitting in his mom and dad’s basement arguing with a life sized doll? If that’s not crazy, I don’t know what is.
But wait, it gets better.
Someone asked her if she was English? Again, I’d like to remind you she’s a doll. Here’s her response:
Technically, I’m half-Japanese (dad’s side) and half-English (mum’s side). I was born in a district of Tokyo, then my parents and I moved to Weatherfield, a suburb of Greater Manchester, when I was five. I still have the accent, thankfully — my lad says I sound like Shirley Henderson out of ’24 hour party people’ — but I’ve forgotten most of my Japanese! 😦
Um, she has an accent but she forgot her Japanese? REALLY?? She’s a doll! A. Doll!!
