Pregnant women use big pillows to be marginally less uncomfortable so I've suddenly been forced to pay attention to obtaining them.
There are some fucked up products out there in this genre of consumer product. Consider, for example, the "boyfriend pillow," complete with fake hand and fake shirt.
I can't actually tell if this is a joke. The other stuff that people who buy this buy on Amazon include fake turds and farting banks and other items of high hilarity in the cubicle world. But the boyfriend pillow has the faint ring of truth.
On the other hand, the girlfriend pillow features fake breasts that look like the eyes of a dead monkey in a cartoon -- and must be a joke since any self-respecting dude without a girl friend will sleep drunkenly on the couch, not cuddled with a dumbass pillow.
