Arthur Brooks, 78, spent $900 on a full-page ad in Idaho’s Coeur d’Alene Press newspaper in attempt to find his 48-year-old son Baron a wife. Using the blunt headline “Looking For a Wife,” Arthur laid out some very old-fashioned requirements for the would-be wife that could only be written by an old man named Arthur. Poor Baron was unaware his father was going to do this, and told The Spokesman-Review he is now rightfully embarrassed:

I can’t even describe to you how embarrassing and ridiculous this is. What am I supposed to do? He already did it. No sense in defusing a bomb once it’s already gone off.”
