fatties need not apply...


I love to mock my local paper! However, I can't really hold "The Sun Advocate" responsible for the crazies who take out strange personal ads. This one made me laugh. I'm sure his phone is ringing off the hook! Look out ladies!
I could have saved him some money with a shorter ad summarizing the basic points...

Desperate, old, unambitious and single LDS Dad seeking non-fat, 30 to 40-something year old woman who loves the outdoors, sappy music and doesn't mind poor spelling, indifference, the occassional use of words like "eldest" in everyday conversation, and loads of credit card debt in a BFF or possible husband who has a decent body but a face like a dropped pie. PS: I need a mom for my kids and don't mind if you have some too.
OK, I'm not sure if that ad was really any shorter than the original but it was a fun rewrite.

That is AWESOME. Weight proportional to height...??? What the..?? Ha ha ha! Too funny!

Wow! That is quite a list. May the eligible bachelor be lucky in love!!

Deelightful. Can you seriously say you will only date someone who's wight is in proportion to their height? Why not mask it a little more and at least say "active" or something.

We saw the same ad and laughed about it. Didn't think to re-write it though. Very clever! Ha ha!
