Brits among the 'ugliest people in the world'
dailymail.co.uk ^ | Nov. 11, 2009 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 11/11/2009 9:37:27 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Brits are among the ugliest people in the world... according to an exclusive website which only allows 'beautiful' people to join.

Less than one in eight UK men (12 per cent) and just three in 20 women (15 per cent) who have applied to BeautifulPeople.com have been accepted as members.

Existing members of the website rate how attractive potential members are over a 48-hour provisional period, when applicants upload a recent photograph and a short personal profile.

They are rated by members of the opposite sex, who have four options to describe how attractive they think the hopeful is - 'Yes definitely', 'Hmmm yes, OK', 'Hmmm no, not really' and 'NO definitely NOT'.

Swedish men have proved the most successful applicants, with two-thirds (65 per cent) of those putting themselves forward being accepted.

Norwegian women are considered the most beautiful with more than three-quarters (76 per cent) making the grade.

Since the website was opened to UK members 295,000 people have applied, with only 35,000 being approved.

One day, they’ll discover the toothbrush and this situation will improve.

Or they have too much sense to apply. I prefer that explanation.

Respectfully, I disagree.

I think the ugliest people in the world are either from Masachusetts and New Jersey.

Ugh.

Growing up, my sister had a British pen pal (remember pen pals?) who sent her a nice coffee table book, “Our Royal Family”. I grew believing that English people were ugly. Hard to believe that the royals are actually Hanoverians.

Hmm...BeautifulPeople.com? I got an email from them once that said, "Not you, Drill. Don't even think about it."

I put it down to jealous supermodels.

A preemptive rejection from www.beautifulpeople.com? Sounds like a Rodney Dangerfield one-liner.

No ugly people thread is complete without a pic of Henry Waxman. He deserves credit for making it out of junior high alive.

He deserves a standing ovation for clawing his way out of the toilet before it could be flushed a second time.

Reminds me of a joke which I can’t quite recall but which goes something like:

Why did the Stones hire Keith Richards?

To make Mick Jagger look healthy.

Bessie Braddock: Winston, you are drunk, and what's more, you are disgustingly drunk.

Churchill: Bessie, my dear, you are ugly, and what's more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly.

Re Zeta-Jones —— yes, she is gorgeous, but I believe she is Welsh! I think the English ‘Brits’ are the ones most under fire in this debate.

English woman specifically are the ugliest, skankiest, most obnoxious and vulgar women in the industrialized world. As any man in any European country, and 99% of them will agree.

There are some hotties in Wales, however, if you know where to find them.

Actually, women in New Jersey are sexier than anywhere in the South, barring Louisiana (I don’t consider Texas to be southern, it is a region all to itself). At one time, the South may have had good looking women, now they are increasingly(not entirely) obese WalMartians.

...Challenging the assertion that British people are among THE ugliest in the world.

But to bring up such details is "xenophobic" unlike when some Euro cheers the people of the Continent.

The South, sir, has such an abundance of beautiful women that we have to ship a large number of them every year to New York for cultural beautification purposes. It's an uphill battle to put it mildly when you consider all those fat, fat, fat Italians and Puerto Ricans but our girls are brave in their missionary work, tough as it is.

Who cares about Euro trash cheering? Surely not the British.

Okay, so Princess Diana was a gorgeous neurotic, and Camilla is way overdue for her dog tags, but we all have our problems.

Why slag off other races?
For your information, “Brits” are actually English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish, not just English.
There is no such thing as a totally English person, as they all are of mixed heritage. As are the majority of other races, in various countries.
How many people have traced their heritage to find that they are of mixed race?
Whoever started this debate should look to their own heritage before trying to say they are “better” than any other.
You have only got to look at the beliefs of Adolf Hitler to see what that led to!
