Funny Dad Buys Full-Page Newspaper Ad to Find 48-Year-Old Son a Wife
A father shocked his son by taking out a full-page ad in an Idaho newspaper in order to find the 48-year-old a wife.
The dad's $900 ad appeared last weekend in the Coeur d’Alene Press, laying out his son's "musts," including conservative political views.
"If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me," the ad stated.
Another requirement was about height.
"I am 5’5” and if you are 5’8” & like to wear high heels it may not work."
The son, identified as Salt Lake City businessman Baron Brooks, told the Spokesman-Review that his father bought the ad without his approval.
"I can’t even describe to you how embarrassing and ridiculous this is," he said.
He compared his father, 78-year-old Arthur Brooks of Beverly Hills, Calif., to Larry David's character on Curb Your Enthusiasm, saying he's "neurotic" and "passive-aggressive."
The Red Eye panel had some fun with this bizarre story last night, with Joanne Nosuchinsky calling Brooks either best or worst father ever.
She noted that women responding to this ad have to remember that they'd be marrying the father too.
Others questioned why the ad appeared in northern Idaho when the son lives in Utah and the father is in Beverly Hills.
