World's Ugliest Animal


The blobfish, a squishy and endangered sea creature native to the waters off Australia, looks remarkably similar to a grouchy landlord I had a number of years ago. He was a sneaky bastard with beady eyes and a big nose … just like the blobfish.
It has recently been given the illustrious distinction as "the world's ugliest animal" by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society, a collaborative effort between the British Science Association and the National Science + Engineering Competition, which is dedicated to "raising the profile of some of Mother Nature's more aesthetically challenged children."
Reportedly, the blobfish is overfished and inedible, a seeming contradiction.
