For Christians Only Romance Ads
The Pennysaver had a section called "For Singles Only". So named, I guess, to keep out male/female couples looking for a bi woman. I think I wrote them all except two. (It seems I spent a lot of time then pouring over singles ads... sigh how little has changed.) I've always been mystified by personal ads that seem rather high minded, speak of a desire to find mutual love and respect but then invariably end in a rather weird "no fatties need apply" directive. Our editorial cartoonist Kristan came up with the one about the woman looking for a lion to tame. The one about the marriage of convenience was Terry's handiwork.
Here's the passages from the Bible mentioned in the final ad:
So, translation "Christian male, 38, 9' tall (1 cubit = 18"), seeks hottie for anal sex and nudism."
I can't believe I wrote that! Gasp!
