Matt Cutts’s Blog is FUNFUGLY.

Matt Cutt’s blog is uglier than a lard bucket full of armpits

I was over at Matt Cutts’ Blog today for my latest dose of Google goodness when it struck me…

HECK! I’m at the most visited blog by the best known blogger from the worlds best known internet company, checking out all the great new innovations – and yet his blog is flaming ugly. I think that’s kinda cool 🙂

Today I couldn’t restrain myself, so I left a message for him on his blog (in jest) suggesting that if he wants to modernize his blog he could always add a DOS-prompt. On further reflection, a midi version of the ‘Knight Rider’ theme as blog background music might be a great touch too :P.

My Mum always told me ‘Matthew, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’ – so maybe I should stop and ponder.. just for a moment..

Ok.. I pondered Mum.. The fact still remains – his site deserves a new word named after it.


    fun-fug-ly [fahn-fahg-lee] (adjective)

  1. functional and yet hideous; simultaneously of great practical use and odious to the eye; offensive to the sense of beauty; displeasing to look at to such an extent it would make a nun curse; ‘The Googlers website was quite funfugly.’
  2. fun to be around, yet not beautiful in the classical sense; ’16 beers and many laughs later and it had happened again. The photos proved my friends were right – s/he was funfugly’.
  3. designed by Engineers without artistic oversight;.
  4. [Origin: 2007, – ‘Matt Cutt’s Blog is FUNFUGLY‘]


This all got me thinking.. I reckon I might just start a competition for the world’s ugliest website.. I’m thinking right now about the selection criteria and will be back with a follow up post when I get one of those round tuit’s I’ve been looking for lately..

In the meantime, feel free to submit your votes for the funfugliest websites you’ve come across in your daily rounds…

    He’s an engineer, it’s his private blog, what did you expect?

    Did you add it to the urban dictionary?

    Actually john – it’s funny you should drop by.. I was thinking of your site too when I wrote that article – it surely has to be at the top of anyones list when it comes to funfugliness.

    I’ve heard of Fugly before, but that’s a contraction of Ugly and another word that starts with Fu…
