This guy married and then divorced his rice cooker

As the old saying goes, you fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. But what if that person turned out to be a thing? Well, Facebook user Khoiral Anam unexpectedly found love in his…rice cooker. It must be making amazing rice, right?

We kid you not. the young man recently posted a set of photos of him and his kitchen appliance in their wedding attire. They even ‘kissed’ and sealed the deal with a wedding contract, making things ‘official.’ “Without you, my rice is not cooked.”

To be fair, rice is a staple in Asian households (Kanin is life), but he may have taken his love for the food too far with this move. Don’t get too concerned though. The contract isn’t possibly legally binding, and how could a rice cooker sign off a marriage contract anyway? 

Four days after their nuptials, however, Anam announced that he and the rice cooker has decided to part ways. “My decision is round.. heavy indeed.. but this is the way I take.. no perfect partner..” he added the hashtag #entertainment to make it clear that he’s joking.

While posts are clearly satirical, he did get a lot of attention from other netizens. Some people do the silliest things for kicks, and a lot of people are bored while stuck in quarantine, right? 

Maybe he’ll find true love in the bathroom next time? Better yet, maybe he’ll find love in a person who’ll play along with his silly antics. Well, all is fair in love and war, but marrying your kitchen appliance might not be the best decision ever.
