Words are wonderful things devices

Did you know that uglily is a word? It's amazing what hours of time-wasting Internet exploration* will do for one's vocabulary and general knowledge.
uglily (adv.)
a modifier used in describing a thing of a generally displeasing nature, esp. aesthetically

He uglily wrote the sentence.**
It's nice to see that some words in the English language make sense.

*Not to be confused with Internet Exploreration. Choose righteousness - choose Firefox.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Yes, yes, I do promise that bigger and at least somewhat better stuff is on the way. Or is at least planned to be on the way.
EDITOR'S NOTE 2: I switched over to the new version of Blogger in recent days. Let me know if you're having any problems with anything website related.

I sillily began applying this to other words ending in ly, but gave up when I found manlily. That just turned into an oxymoron within itself.
