fug, oh how I love you

now I know not everyone is as familiar with fug as some of you are, but i just love it so darn much.

The concept of Fug comes from all the way back in July 2004, a great little page called "go fug yourself". Now most people when they first hear the word fug, think of a particularly distasteful phrase used by young adult males meaning (and I apologise in advance) F***ing Ugly. This is not the case with the fug we hold dear to our hearts.

From the page itself in the FAQ section,

fug•ly (adj.)frightfully ugly; of or pertaining to something beyond the boundaries of normal unattractiveness. Ex: "That 'Kabbalists Do It Better' trucker hat is fugly."
fug (n.)1. A state of extreme ugliness. Ex: "The level of fug at the Video Music Awards is always hard to stomach."2. A proper name for someone possessed of eternal heinousness, as Chloe Sevigny: "Oh look, there's Fug, looking all miserable and dour in her black turtleneck and white frilly farm dress."
fug•ging (v.) The act of posting on one's blog in order to identify something excruciatingly ugly. Ex: "Hey, I am fugging Li'l Kim again for wearing only a tiny piece of cloth."

And furthur on

2. So "fugly" is like extreme ugliness?
Kind of -- we like to think of "ugly" as something that refers to an unchangeable condition, but also a condition above which people can rise. Fugly, however, is a self-inflicted state, and no one seems to excel at dwelling in the depths of fug quite like
pretty people with money to spare and little sense of how to spend it.
Celebrities are always skipping around in public wearing things that are phenomenally perplexing; as these red-carpet dwellers are often considered trendsetters or bastions of Hip Present and Hip Future, we like to take them to task for careless choices. (Of particular concern: whomever got little girls thinking that miniskirts and Ugg boots were a stellar combination.)

so this really highlights what fug is all about. It's about people that should know better or that pay other people for them to know better.
This is why technically it's unfair to fug (v.) a total stranger as they're filling up at the petrol station, or standing in line at the movies.
But we can't help it. There are certain areas of Sydney that just can't help it, they seem to be a fug mecca. A vertiable plethora of fugs. C'mon people, you've seen it, you know what I mean.
Actually, just yesterday I passed a young woman wearing- *gasp* STIRRUP PANTS. With, I assure you, nary a horse in sight! I can be very sure of this, as it was the Bridal Registry section of David Jones.
So in homage to Fug today, here are some of my favorites, but its a very extensive site and I couldn't find them all.

Happy Friday everyone!!

Yes, yes, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon Stone is definitely one of my all time favourites. I'M TELLING YOU THINGS. I still cack myself every time I read it. Those fug ladies are brilliant.

But you didn't include anything with Courtney Love? I LOVE the Coutney Love ones. My favourite is "I'm Sotally Tober!"
