    This Animal Has Been Voted the ‘Ugliest’ of Them All

    Sep. 12, 2013 5:33pm Liz Klimas

    Some would say it’s so ugly, it’s cute. Others would maintain it’s just plain ugly.

    The fish that looks a bit like a cartoonish old man with fins has officially been voted through the Ugly Animal Preservation Society as the ugliest of the ugly of animals it seeks to protect.
    The U.K. group is ”dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature’s more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention.”
    The voting process included six acts by comedians who would “humorously champion an endangered ugly species of their choice and convince the audience that their animal should become the society’s emblem.”
    Here is the video short about the group made by a U.K. science festival:

    I'm thinking a good onion powder cayenne batter and a deep fryer, what's not to like?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Preservation society? It already looks dead to me. But I prefer a beer batter.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    The face has just a hint of Barney Frankness.

    On edit: of course I am not the first to have thought this.

    What would an amorous blobfish see in another blobfish, what would that fish have that would distinguish it as that special someone, would it be the nose, the lips?

    Of course, dogfish style!

    Okay, maybe we shouldn't be pointing fingers here.

    just ugly....
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
