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.
