The Ugliest Thing in the World Contest Just Got Uglier
Our Muse


I know you are waiting with bated breath to find out which entry wins the title of “The Ugliest Thing in the World.” Well . . . you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. The judges are all in the bathroom throwing up. No, seriously, they’re deadlocked.

At midnight on the fourth of July we locked them in a room with a box of Triscuits and a case of Red Bull and they’ve been there ever since, yammering on and on about overturning the tyranny of the bourgeois aesthetic paradigm and not compromising their artistic integrity. At one point the shouting got so loud we had to blast the last episode of Treme to drown them out. And yet, despite all the racket and many trips to the corner store for supplies, no progress has been made.

So we’re letting the judges go home and turning this crucial task over to you. Just go to my facebook page and cast your vote by leaving a comment below the photo of your choice. We’ll compile the results and announce the winner at 6 PM Saturday, July 9.

Vote early and often. And when you’ve finished voting for the ugliest thing in the world, be sure to vote for Sam Barry for mayor!
