The Good, the Bad, but Mostly, the Ugly

June 29, 2018

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this week has been particularly ugly. From pets to people, here are some hideous highlights from this past week:

  •  UGLY DOGS – A 9-year-old English bulldog named Zsa Zsa was named the winner of the 2018 World’s Ugliest Dog contest last Saturday. The win earned owner Megan Brainard $1500 – but in a contest like that, are there really any winners?
  • UGLY DEFEAT – Playing in the World Cup means you are representing your country on a global stage, so it may hurt a little extra when things don’t go as planned. With their loss to South Korea, Germany is officially out of the tournament, and German media is not happy about it. A Düsseldorf-based paper called the loss “Germany’s downfall” and that is just the beginning. Check out how Germans are reacting to their surprisingly early defeat.
  • UGLY DE-FEET – Just like with those playing in the World Cup, being a new member of the royal family means all eyes are on you. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is known for her perfectly curated style, but some have noticed something strange about her shoes. Often looking particularly roomy, style experts are speculating wildly about why the new duchess is sizing up.
