Ugly Guitar Building Contest Update!

Songs in the Key of Ug.

I had no frickin’ idea that the Bad Body Building Contest would strike such a chord with readers. Granted, it’s not the prettiest of chords. I think it might be the one shown here.

Seriously — in 24 hours, I received well over 100 creations. I am humbled. I am moved. I am nauseous.

I’m posting a few “favorites” as a slideshow. This is only the tip of the iceberg. (“Iceberg” may not be the best metaphor, though. Perhaps if you envision a huge floating mass made of bacon grease, My Little Pony figurines, and moldy iceberg lettuce….) There are many, many amazing ones posted here.
