  •  View Definition: fuggly 


    /fuhg'lee/ adj. Emphatic form of funky; funky + ugly). Unusually for hacker jargon, this may actually derive from black street-jive. To say it properly, the first syllable should be growled rather than spoken. Usage humorous. "Man, the {ASCII}-to-{EBCDIC} code in that printer driver is *fuggly*." See also wonky.
