= B =
bletcherous /blech'*-r*s/ adj.
Disgusting in design or
function; esthetically unappealing. This word is seldom used of
people. "This keyboard is bletcherous!" (Perhaps the keys don't
work very well, or are misplaced.) See losing,
cretinous, bagbiting, bogus, and random. The
term bletcherous applies to the esthetics of the thing so
described; similarly for cretinous. By contrast, something
that is `losing' or `bagbiting' may be failing to meet
objective criteria. See also bogus and random, which
have richer and wider shades of meaning than any of the above.
