One Romeo is going all the way to the Super Bowl to prove just how much he loves his Juliet.
A lovesick west coast man is preparing a $2.5 million dollar marriage proposal to show his girlfriend he means business.
The ultra-romantic proposal will air in a commercial spot during Super Bowl Sunday.
Thirty-second spots during the football game that draws 100 million viewers cost into the multi-millions. But this guy was determined to make it happen, reported the New York Daily News.
The suitor, known only as J.P., decided he wanted to make his marriage proposal unforgettable, so he hatched the plan to make it happen during the Super Bowl.
He designed his own Web site, MySuperProposal.com, to raise money for the venture.
He calls his plan "the most public declaration of love in the history of mankind."
The Web site raised over $75,000 in donations, but the anonymous Romeo soon realized he would need more muscle to garner enough cash to buy a pricey Super Bowl spot. So, he hooked up with public relations and ad firms, who helped him find a sponsor to pay the bill.
"The ad is in production ... and of those who have seen it, there wasn't a dry eye," said his spokesman, Jamie O'Donnell, of San Francisco-based SEO-PR. "Women who saw it were saying, 'If she doesn't marry him, I will.'"
The advertiser's identity is also under wraps, but O'Donnell says it will be apparent who funded the ad when the spot runs on February 4th.
The couple will be at home watching the famous game when the ad is set to air.
The gal pal's reaction and answer will be taped, and immediately posted on video sites like YouTube, O'Donnell said.
Half-Naked Women and Half-Cooked Beef
Japanese businessmen have found a new delicacy to enjoy along with their shabu-shabu ... half-clothed waitresses.
A new Tokyo restaurant is the hottest thing to hit the city lately, in more ways than one, reported the Mainichi Daily News.
OL Shabu Shabu Shomuni serves shabu-shabu, a delicacy where thin slices of beef are dragged through boiling water and dipped in sauce before being eaten.
But, its real claim to fame are the waitresses who dressed like normal office ladies' ... only they'll strip down at the request of the diners.
Meals cost 5,000 yen for 60 minutes, which entitles the diner to eat and drink as much as they want, as well as request clothing changes from any of the available waiting staff.
Normally, there are about 10 women on hand.
The restaurant also supplies diners with hand mirrors and binoculars for those who want an up close and personal look at the staff.
One Life Down, 8 to Go
HUDSON, Fla. (AP) -- Snowball the cat is recovering after veterinarians removed an arrow from its head.
Amanda Pugh told deputies her 6-year-old daughter found a stray cat Sunday with the head of a 10-inch arrow protruding from the chin. The arrow had entered near the base of the skull.
Pugh couldn't afford emergency surgery, so she released the cat to Pasco County Animal Services, who paid a veterinarian to remove the arrow. The cat is doing well.
A shelter supervisor says Snowball was adopted on Sunday.
No Wonder They're Disgruntled
OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Postal workers apparently have no special clout when it comes to being told the check's in the mail.
That's the case in this western Kentucky city, where post office employees are still waiting for their Jan. 12 paychecks.
They seem to have been lost -- in the mail, Postmaster Kristine Fox told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer.
"Somebody somewhere made a mistake," she said. "And nobody has 'fessed up yet."
Fox said she called several postal centers to try to track down the missing checks but had no success. She said she waited to ask for new checks because she kept thinking the old ones would surface.
"I wouldn't have waited this long," she said. "But Monday was a holiday. And I kept thinking I would find them."
The biweekly checks come from Egan, Minn., she said, and are sorted several times along the way.
So Long South Park
MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- There are not many fans of Cartman and Kenny on the city's recreation board, which has recommended renaming what has become known as South Park.
Having a park with the same name as Comedy Central's popular but often vulgar cartoon show about four elementary-school boys in the Colorado town of South Park has become inappropriate, said Kathy House, the city's director of administration.
Story lines of the show regularly revolve around skewering celebrities, politicians and religion, peppered with lots of cussing and defecation jokes.
The green space in the southern part of Marysville never had an official name, but people started calling it South Park because of the location, officials said.
"We wanted to get away from (the name) South Park," said Deborah Groat, a member of the Parks and Recreation Commission.
"Far away from South Park," added fellow parks commissioner Cathy Dwertman.
So, the commission voted unanimously Tuesday in favor of a change to Greenwood Park, after a nearby subdivision.
The final decision rests with the city council, which meets later this month.
