Dad Buys Full-Page Newspaper Ad to Find a Wife For His Son
So the answer is no, there's never a point in your life when your parents stop embarrassing you.
48-year-old Baron Brooks in Salt Lake City, Utah was featured in a full-page ad in the "Coeur d'Alene Press" newspaper in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on Saturday. The ad was focused on getting him a wife.
Baron has never been married, and the ad is looking for a woman who is, "ready, willing, and able to have children as soon as possible", "attractive, being height and weight proportional" and "politically conservative."
It also mentions that, "I'm 5-foot-5, and if you are 5-foot-8 and like to wear heels, it might not work."
Baron didn't take out that ad, and he didn't even know it existed. His 78-year-old father Arthur Brooks took out the ad, it cost $900. He picked a newspaper in Idaho because he thought that it would be a good place to find conservatives.
Baron says he was furious and said, "I can't even describe how embarrassing and ridiculous this is." The ad actually did drum up some interest from women, so he's letting his dad go ahead with some interviews.
