78 year old dad advertises for conservative wife for son

Last week, 78-year-old Arthur Brooks decided his 48-year-old son had been single too long — so he took matters into his own hands. He did what any crazy father with no sense of boundaries would do: He placed a creepy $900 full-page ad for a wife for his son in a newspaper hundreds of miles away.

“I am looking for a wife who is ready, willing and able to have children as soon as possible," the ad in the Coeur d’Alene Press read.

The notice listed an age range — 34 to 38 — and assorted other demands, including that the woman agree to be a stay-at-home mom and that she be conservative.


“If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me.”

His son Baron, however, had no idea there was a kooky ad campaign on his behalf.

“This is so crazy, I can’t even tell you,” the health food trade broker told the Daily News. “It’s very embarrassing and humiliating.”

3. I would not be a happy camper if I had been his son.

I would first let him know that he's not to do that again ever. I would then change my phone number and email address.
