Just How Ugly are You?

Related imageU-1: No ugliness. Beautiful inside and out. If you are a woman, you are probably living with dwarfs and hiding from a wicked queen. Birds help you with your chores… animals avenge your poisoning. If you are a man, you have an abnormally strong chin and tend to pick fights with dragons. If you are waiting for me to provide a REAL LIFE example of someone at this level, you’ll be waiting quite a while.

Related imageU-2: Real beautiful people always have a flaw. You’ll never find it because people this attractive never let uglier people get that close to them. The sad thing is, unless you are Bono, being U-2 is only temporary. A little age will drop you to U-3 in a heartbeat. A lab accident involving exploding clouds of acid and you might drop to a radioactive U-9 in an afternoon.

Related imageU-4: Barely pretty. Attractive in the right light. If you are a guy, some U-3 woman settles for you when you hit your thirties. If you are a woman, you might get to stand next to a used Pontiac in an ad for your brother-in-law’s car dealership.

If you are standing next to an attractive person AND an ugly person, how you look will depend upon the optimism of the observer. Some see the glass as half ugly and others see it as half-full…

A big nose… one eye a little lower than the other… no earlobes… It’s the kind of ugly that a single trip to a cosmetic surgeon would take care of.

Related imageU-7: Functional ugliness. If you are big and this ugly, you’ve got a career in bouncing… your job is essentially eighty percent done when your clientele lay eyes on you. A man that ugly MUST have fought simply to exist… a lot. Charles Bronson built a career on those looks. A woman that ugly will reach high levels in whatever corporation she hooks up with. You’ll think people are thoughtfully listening to your instructions but, actually, they are thinking to themselves, “She’s got to be competent because NO ONE would employ someone THIS hideous”…

You’ll notice the word “ugly” sticks in their throat when they try to use it in your presence. The adult thing to do would be to coax them into treating you like everyone else; however, I’d advise milking it for all it’s worth.  I do…

    1. It’s like Groucho Marx’s “eight-cent nickel”. You could take that nickel, buy a three cent newspaper and get the same nickel back as change. One nickel, properly handled, could be used by a family indefinitely…

    1. That’s got me beat, Robbie. Even in the dark I hear startled screams of “dear God what is THAT thing?”. Blindfolds are nearly impossible to administer when the blindfoldee is kicking and biting…

      1. I have a lot of experience TRYING to put blindfolds on unwilling victims in the dark. Although most times, the unwilling victim sneaks out immediately and I end up with a blindfolded bedpost…
