The authors' use of the word "Fug" is discussed at length in the Go Fug Yourself FAQ. They sum it up by stating that "Fugly ... is a self-inflicted state, and no one seems to excel at dwelling in the depths of fug quite like pretty people with money to spare and little sense of how to spend it." Commonly, "fugly" is believed to be a combination of the words "fucking ugly", although the authors claim it is a combination of "fantastically ugly."
