Friday 5 for August 14: U G L Y !

U! G! L! Y! You ain’t got no alibi!

Welcome to this week’s Friday 5. Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there, then leave a comment below so we all know where to check out your responses! Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

1. What’s so ugly it’s kind of cute?

Isetta Car

The old Isetta bubble car that was built in the 1950s and 1960s for the European market. This is the kind of car the Obama administration and the environmental wackos want us to drive someday... except have it powered by some kind of expensive biofuel such as corn. Or maybe pedal power like The Flintstones!

The Isetta is so ugly that in a way it is kind of cute. But I'd never buy one. Get into a collision with an SUV and your guts and brains will be part of the pavement.

Runner-up: Nash Metropolitan. 2nd runner up: Scion xB

2. What’s the ugliest article of clothing in your wardrobe?

Socks and underwear with holes. Good thing WalMart is nearby and most of the time no one can see these items of clothing if I wear them.

3. What’s the ugliest car on the streets today?

I absolutely hate those big "hoochie mama", pimp-mobile, bling cars, trucks and SUVs. You know which ones I am talking about. They are usually Cadillac Escalades, Lincoln Navigators, Town Cars, Ford Crown Vics or large Lexus LS 460's that have excessive bling and after-market accessories tacked on to them. They are topped off with those oversize 22, 24, 26 and 30(?) inch tires with the rims that remain stationary or move very slowly even when the vehicle is in motion! And you can hear the worst ones from a mile away because the owner-drivers have the stereo blasting awful hip hop and rap music long before the vehicle can be seen. YUCK. UGLY!!!

Pontiac Aztek

Runner Up: Any remaining Pontiac Aztek still on the road. These monstrosities of automotive design need to all be scrapped as soon as possible. CASH for CLUNKERS folks!!!!

4. Under what circumstances are you most likely to whip out your ugliest behavior?

When I am at deadline and a last minute change takes place and I cannot deal with it simply by using a computer (or get others to do the same).

5. Which of the United States of America has the ugliest shape?

West Virginia because it was the hardest one to draw when I used to draw U.S. maps back in grade school for some assignments. Whoever created the borders for this state was probably drunk or owed too many political favors to congressmen from other states... or maybe the Indians still occupied lands that went zig and zag near there. Right next to it is Maryland which is also shaped goofy and a bitch to draw. They should have made all the states look like Colorado, Wyoming and Utah... yeah that would be easy!

OK, now I'll try to have a good weekend and look for a Pontiac Aztek or a bling vehicle to take a photograph of.

  1. I picked Maryland too - how is that even considered a shape?
