Chang Kim loves Asuna, a honey-blonde beauty who is great with a sword.

“She’s a good cook, good with kids, and she knows how to fend for herself. There’s not much else I could ask for,” the 20-year-old student from Georgia says of the woman he calls his “waifu.”

Asuna isn’t a real woman, but that doesn’t matter to Kim, who has spent about $500 of his grocery cashier’s salary on merchandise depicting his 2D sweetheart. From resin figures to body pillows—huggable oversized pillows with life size images of an anime character on them—the industry is banking on people like Kim being unable to resist products that market one special character.

Your word is Forbes.

Forbes - n; a group of money hungry money hungerers who are hungry for money

Can you use it in a sentence please?

"Hey Jim, did you make it on the Forbes list?"
"No Jimmy, my father wasn't rich enough"

Ok. F-o-r-b-e-s. Forbes.

ERR

The correct spelling was t-r-a-p-p-e-d i-n-c-o-n-s-u-m-e-r-i-s-m

Come back when your dad is rich enough okay kiddo.

Does Forbes no longer hire editors?

That is an awful article.

An article like this on Forbes of all places...


“If you have a crush on Justin Bieber, for example, it’s as two dimensional as having a crush on an anime character. The concept of Justin Bieber that you’re in love with is not a real person,” she said.


You know, it's kinda hard to argue against that.

Forbes could do with fixing the website layout... The text is way too large and the whole thing is just odd in the way it's set out...

I feel painfully embarrassed for this deeply disturbed person.

to be honest, i dont really see a problem with this; waifus.
i do this sort of thing all the time, im a writer and my charicters are real to me, as real as my own family. i talk about them like they are real. writers have skirted the edge of sanity forever, now its just taken a step further and its the general public that skirts the line of sanity.
