Wicked Wit Skewers Fugly Fashion at Snarky Blog

Go Fug Yourself is a snarky blog about celebrity fashion. It is so wrong to enjoy something so mean.

Fug means frightfully ugly, according to the blog's FAQs – but Wikipedia confirms my suspicion the “f” stands for an unsavory four-letter street word. The blog is so well-known and influential that it has its own entry. There’s something for my aspirations – an entry about ordinaryordinary in wiki.

Fug is a "self-inflicted” condition that characterizes “pretty people with money to spare and little sense how to spend it,” the blog explains. One must, of course, possess sufficient celebrity so that paparazzi are standing by to document one’s fashion faux pas.

Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan write Go Fug Yourself. I don’t know why I read it. Perhaps because silly togs are a fitting target in our celebrobsessed culture. Withering wit is an art in itself, as proved by Oscar Wilde.

Best giggle today in spite of it being a sad commentary on our society these days -- at least you can take a humorous approach. Sometimes the best we can hope for is the ability to laugh at things we can't hope to change.
