It is safe to say that the sun has set on the heyday of personal ads. In fact, most millennials tragically don’t read print news at all.

This clip is not only a relic, it is a comedic gem. A Reddit user posted this picture after stumbling on a surpassing ad in a newspaper his dad had squirreled away from 1973.

At first glance, the instinct is instant heartache. What could be worse than a pathetic, depressed appeal for reconciliation via the personal? I mean, that’s just sad.

Swerving in a surprising direction at the very end, this is a laugh-out-loud dig.

Whoever Sue is from 1973, I bet this stung to read in print. Digitalized, it is a massive blow.

Clever, Rick, I hope you eventually found the company you were looking for.

Baby Goats Turn A Lounging Horse Into Their Own Personal Playground (Video)

If the movies I watched as a child are correct, farm animals share a special bond with each other (which is largely due to the fact that they can apparently speak English when humans aren’t around). Given that horses seem to be startled by almost every single thing in the entire world (I also base […]
