You know what's fascinating? Ugliesttattoos.com. But that website doesn't have what I think may well be the ugliest (not to mention creepiest) tattoo of all time.
The State (with such comedians as Michael Ian Black & Michael Showalter of Stella) is the Gen X follow-up to sketch comedies shows as Monty Python and Kids in the Hall. It follows the same rambling pattern as Mr. Show (unlike, say, SNL, which treats each sketch as an individual and generally self-contained story). Or even a bit like Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job! (Quiz: can you spot the Tim & Eric inspired tattoo on ugliesttattoos.com?)
Next up: This cat isn't creepy (and I'm sorry if you clicked on that link. I don't know what that guy's problem is.), but this monkey's intentions may not be entirely honorable.
