Suggested For You


  • That awful fish pillow gets my vote. Anyone who’s ever been described as “fish-faced” is certainly ugly!

  • Hi, #6 here… the funny thing is… I, too, thought I could salvage it. Despite the description, it is actually cleaned and washed… no amount of soap can wash away ugly. Thank you for your votes! :D

  • The lace pillow is not just ugly. The lace pillow is evil. I’m not sure it is safe or healthy for us to be contemplating and discussing it. Therefore I voted for the kissing ducks, which, while frightening, is not actually demonic.

  • Granted, they are all ugly even though sometimes things can be so bad that they become a statement. I voted for the stag – those does in the background lusting after him just nauseated me, yuk!
