A Knitted Boyfriend Is Even Sadder Than Being Alone

If a girlfriend body pillow doesn't ring your bell, don't worry. There's now a male alternative that includes all of its limbs and body parts -- or at least most of them.

Created by artist Noortje de Keijzer as the perfect companion, the knitted beau can't hold down a job, can't really stand by itself, and probably won't remember a single anniversary. But he'd be a damn good listener, a warm companion on cold nights, and in emergencies he can be cut open and worn as a sweater or pajamas. Who could ask for anything more in a partner? Ok, maybe all of the above minus all of the incredible creepiness of this creation.
