Man places newspaper ad seeking for a woman to marry his 48-year old son

Salt Lake City Businessman Baron Brooks, 48, said he was mortified when he saw his own smiling face on a full-page newspaper, the Coeur d'Alene Press. His father placed a $900 advertisement on the popular newspaper seeking applications from women to marry him.

"If I die now, I want it to be known by medical science, that one can die from embarrassment," Baron Brooks told Q13 News.
Baron said his father didn't ask his permission to place the ad and he had no idea until he started getting tons of phone calls.

The ad invites eligible women to be interviewed to be Baron's wife. It includes a brief description of Baron with a photo and the ideal attributes of his suitable mate.

Baron said he didn't want to hurt his father's feelings so he allowed his dad to go ahead and interview candidates to be his future wife. As at the time of this report, about 12 women had already applied and are scheduled for interview at a Coeur d'Alene resort by Baron’s father in the next couple of weeks.

Baron Brooks, the owner of two health food stores, said his father Arthur Brooks, 78, originally from Beverly Hills, California, is ill and wants a grandchild to carry on the family name.

The advertisement lists criteria for potential applicants, including age, height and political views.

"If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me," the ad reads.

Baron said his father Arthur Brooks, 78, is "neurotic" and "passive-aggressive," and compared him to Larry David's character in the TV series "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

"That's my dad: stumbles into stuff, has a loud mouth, thinks he does the right thing, and then it all blows up in his face," explained the younger Brooks. "He just does this crap. If I shared some of the stories, you wouldn't believe it."

Baron said his father recently vacationed in Coeur d'Alene and may have placed the ad in that paper because of the area's conservative politics.

Brooks, who is Jewish, said he is a political conservative.

"And most Jewish girls are quite liberal, and that doesn't work for me," he explained. "You probably are going to get more like a Midwest-type values in Idaho - somebody's who more right of center than you would, say, in Los Angeles."

He said he'd never buy an ad like this himself, but noted that it's "pretty well written."

"It's worth a shot," Baron said. "Can't hurt."
