    Default Does anyone remember...

    The Sun newspaper dating ads from the 1980's?

    I mind as a nipper seeing a guy with a huge pipe hanging out his mouth and a big dodgy beard!

    I doubt they would appeal to people now, that guy probably paid the piper with that pipe!

    Probably had crabs in that big Dodgy beard too!

    Eewww.

    I remember the ads for weird things like the big slipper for old folk and blankets with holes for your arms, and other weird stuff. But I didn't tend to read the dating ads to be honest.
