I knew I'd heard this word somewhere before. Regular posters to this board will remember a long-suffering translater who was trying to translate the script of the movie "Bring It On" into Croatian or something. This is a truly appalling film about competitive cheerleading starring the scarily chipper Kirsten Dunst that my 8 year old daughter made me rent and watch with her. All of which is almost entirely off the point, except that my 8 year old memorised the entire lyrics to one of the songs used in the film, which I reproduce below:-

U.G.L.Y by Daphne And Celeste

O.K! I'm a cheerleader now!

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi
You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly.

I saw you walking down the street just the other day
I didn't see your damage from that far away
I should have got a clue when the kids started screaming
You walked up to me with your buck teeth a-gleaming
You hair was all frizzy and your face was a mess
I thought it was a sack but it's your favourite dress
You hurt the trees feelings and the birds all flew
I don't mean to insult you - Oh yes I do!

Your teeth are yellow they're covered in mould
You're only fourteen you look a hundred years old
When looks were handed out you were last in line
You face looks like where the sun don't shine
Did you fall off a building and land on your head
Or did a truck run over your face instead
There ain't no pill cos you ain't ill
You ugly!

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi
You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly.

What you really need is to wear a mask
And book that plastic surgeon fast, girl
You're scary you're hairy I heard about you
You're the main attraction at the city zoo
You're so ugly with a belly full of flab
When you wear a yellow coat people shout out cab! (So funny)
You got eyes like a pig and your nose is big
And with hair like that you should be wearing a wig
Uncle Fester remember him
I never knew that you had a twin
You can't disguise your googly eyes
In the Miss Ugly pageant you win first prize
Your mama says you ugly, you ugly

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi
You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly

Get busy. Your mama says you ugly, you ugly.

U-U-U-U now I feel like blondie

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi.
You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly!

Quasimodo
Camelbreath
Squarehead
Ugly!
Chicken legs
Pigface
Chin like bubba
Ugly!
Fish lips
Toad licker
Poindexter
Ugly!
Spaghetti arms
Limp butt
Freakshow
Ugly!

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi.
You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly!

U.G.L.Y. you could make an onion cry
U.G.L.Y. like an alien chased by the F.B.I

U.G.L.Y. You ain't got no alibi.
You UGLY!

Whoever said poetry was dead? Anyway, among the list of insulting terms is Poindexter, which I *think* is U.S. slang meaning geek or nerd. I have no idea why, nor do I know how it came about. I'm sure someone from the land of the brave and the home of the free will be able to confirm details and supply more information.

PS actually it's a very catchy little song, I am ashamed to admit...
