Ugly

"U-G-L-Y you ain't got no alibi, you ugly, yeah yeah, you ugly!"

This cheer could be heard at every Podunk Longhorn football game when I was in school. Team spirit; you got it. Sportsmanship; not so much. Yelling that your opponent is ugly was just about as fun as fun could get, cheer wise anyway.

So, what's wrong with being ugly? Oh groan, is this post going to point us in a politically correct direction? How bout visually challenged? Those of lesser beauty?

My local grocery store not only accepts the Ugli, they celebrate it. Then charge you $2.49 a pound for it. What price beauty...... yeah





If you squint you can read the ugli sticker


Look at this display of Ugli fruit. Doesn't it look, well, Ugli? No longer will the oppressed Ugli fruit be pushed into a corner of the produce section. Now Ugli fruit has a large, prominent end cap position where it has been lovingly stacked for display. Wow.


Join me in celebrating the triumph of the Ugli fruit! Hooray Ugli fruit! You go fruit!


What does it taste like? I have no idea, I don't buy Ugli fruit.


Dear Daphne & Celeste: we were saying that cheer before you were even born so don't try to go all copyright crazy on me.

Tracy said...

Hey, I remember doing the Ugly cheer in high school. That was fun.


Does some of that ugly fruit have mold on it?
I think that the grocery had bad fruit and decided to call it special and see if anyone bought it.
Don't fall for it Jean Knee!

Melissa said...

They look like sad deformed grapefruit... I'm not one to pass judgement or anything like that, but these are ugly!

Millie said...

Puke Fruit is what it should be called (for obvious reasons).

You were brave to take a picture of it. It looks ready to attack.

No Cool Story said...

For the good of Blogtopia you MUST buy this ugly fruit and tell us how it tastes.

It's only fair.

No Cool Story said...

I have never heard of the ugly cheer.
When was it that you went to school you said?

Oh, you didn't?
Hmmpf.

No Cool Story said...

*******

Bow before me!

Bee said...

Now I'm gonna go looking at my store to see if they have the ugli.

I thought they were crappy lemon/limes!

Bee said...

Brian and NCS, do you have to like throw it in my face and stuff?
(:'o{

Tori :) said...

Go ULGI Fruit!!!

No Cool Story said...

There there Bee.
Maybe you can be 11th one of these years.

Hey It's Di said...

Hey! My school did the Ugly cheer too and at the end we would make some sort of grunt noise. I don't know what that was about?

I'm kind of feeling bad for the Ugli fruit. I mean, it's not only really Ugli but it's expensive. It's a cruel joke on the poor squishy fruit I tell you!

Jean Knee said...

Aubrey: I didn't know it was a song till I wrote this post. It was a fun cheer...

Jean Knee said...

Tracy: they'll never make me buy it, never never, well probably never!

Melissa- it is ugly , that's why I won't buy it. don't report me

Millie: it would not surprise me at all if it bit into someone's neck or foot or something

NCS: I know you ate a cricket for blogtopia but, really look at that ugly stuff. I graduated high school in 1983, baby! Daphne & Celeste were just being born (1982 & 1983)

Jean Knee said...

Bee: too bad they didn't serve it at that crappy, I mean happy pampered chef party.

Tori: yea go ugli

Di: I know, I didn't see anyone buying it, poor thing, it didn't seem to notice though

Lisa said...

I've never had Ugli fruit, either. NCS eats crickets, I bet she would give this a try.

Adeline's Shabby Cottage said...

ok, I had to google this before leaving a comment.

A.) We too did the ugly cheer. Not a proud moment but at least I am big enough to admit it.

B.) Beware of the ugli fruit. Not only is it unattractive, but has a moisture problem. Apparantly is known to be super juicy. Squirt, squirt.

Stacey said...

That fruit just ain't right.

juicy. Squirt said...

YEAH BABY!

Dan said...

At least the fuit is not trying to trick you, in the summer I buy lots of watermelons that look prettybut when I open them up there ugly and taste like dog ass.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

You are what you eat.

Stay away from the Ugli fruit.

Does the world really need more ugliness in it??!!?

ugly ugli said...

I wanna get in yo tummy!

Klin said...

Hey I remember that cheer! I heard in in the movie Wildcats with Goldie Hawn.

That is some ugly fruit. They really called it Ugli?

Dapoppins said...

Rhonda said...

OK seriously...are they supposed to look like that? They truly look like rotten lemons.

pretty people international said...
