, and afterwards legally changed her name to Mrs. Erika La Tour Eiffel. She suffers from Objectum-Sexual Disorder. And as you can tell from the name, it's a rare psychological disorder that makes you want to hump inanimate objects.
Okay, so I'm over-simplifying here. But that's really what it is.
So here's another strange case: meet 33 year-old Amy Wolfe of Pennsylvania. She's in love with an amusement park ride called 1001 Nachts. And she is going to marry it.
Ms. Wolfe has been in love with 1001 Nachts for over 10 years and has ridden it at least 3,000 times. The 80 ft. gondola ride that swings you up and down and all around like you're riding a giant pendulum has been the object of Ms. Wolfe's desire ever since she first rode him when she was 13 years old.
"I was instantly attracted to him sexually and mentally," Ms. Wolfe says - referring to the ride as "him
." "I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we'll be together forever."
Forever? Well...maybe until the state inspectors declare "him" unsafe for riding.
Ms. Wolfe currently lives 160 miles away from Knoebels Amusement Park where her soul mate is stationed. So in the meantime, she keeps a picture of 1001 Nachts taped to her ceiling above her bed (ewwww).
She also keeps 1001 Nachts' spare bolts and nuts in her pocket. Seriously.
Amy plans on changing her last name to Weber, the manufacturer of the 1001 Nachts. And when asked what she sees in the amusement park ride, she replied:
"He's so noble, so proud, so strong. I love him as a mate. I love him for the elegant lines of his gondola."
I have one question for Amy Wolfe, soon-to-be Amy Weber...does she get jealous when other people ride "him?"
