Wife Wanted? In The NY Times?

POST #    645

Wife Wanted ad from the New York Times, Dec. 13, 2003

I was perusing The New York Times print edition on Saturday and was surprised to see an advertisement that read "WIFE WANTED." Not really an ad tagline that I expected in a fine newspaper like the Times. It turns out that the ad was for a sewing machine.

It's almost the same as Gothamist's experience with a racy pop-up ad, but that turned out to be spyware.

Incidentally, I'm not really looking for a wife. Not right now anyway. I think I'm too young to get married.
