2Man Sues Wife for Ugly Baby... and Wins!
As it turns out, his wife didn't cheat, but did gloss over the fact that she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to severely change how she looked before she met him. It's the kind of thing that can slip your mind on the first date. After his wife revealed this to him, Feng took the only right-minded course of action and divorced and sued her, claiming that she got him to marry her under false pretenses. The false pretense presumably was that she was good looking.
Feng sued and, incredibly, he won $120,000 in judgment against his ugly-turned-beautiful ex-wife.
3Church Considers Ban on Marriage of Ugly People
“Wedding photos soon get passed around a small community, and we really don't want to be associated with the joining of munters.”
Until now, the church has avoided such open hostility to the cosmetically battered by using obscure rules to bar them from the premises. “Our vicars are trained to compare our customers with the gargoyles on the roof,” said Horton. “If the results are iffy, we make up all sorts of excuses.” Horton revealed that the church uses euphemisms to describe those that ming. ‘A bit on the catholic side,' ‘very unconfirmed' or ‘fell out of the parish' are all clues to other vicars to give them the elbow.
NOTE: we just realized this new came from the News Thump website, "UK Spoof News and Satire" and it does not describe a real policy being considered. Shame on us.
4‘Beautiful' Dating Site Boots 30,000 Ugly People
“We got suspicious when tens of thousands of new members were accepted over a six-week period, many of whom were no oil painting,” site director Greg Hodge said in a prepared statement. About 30,000 users reportedly got a not-so-polite rejection email informing them their profiles would be shuttered. “Sorry to inform you, you're not beautiful enough,” the email stated, according to one report.
Some are calling the site out for faking the virus. After all, this is the same site that once falsely reported it was making users reapply for membership after the holiday season because too many “let themselves go.”

6"Ugly" People Get Their Own Dating Site
Instead, it accepts only those who “weren't blessed with great looks” — or, more bluntly, people who have “fallen from the ugly tree and hit every branch on their way down.”
According to the site's straight-talking creator Howard James, it offers the “aesthetically challenged” a much-needed service. Mr James, a multimillionaire entrepreneur from Mayfair, London, said, “It's a sad fact that up to half of the UK is made up of ugly people yet amazingly nobody has ever thought of providing a dating service for them."
The couple featured in the picture above was the first one to meet and get engaged thanks to the dating website. However, they later split up.
