GFY’s 10,000th Post: A Thank You, A Reveal, And A Trip Down Memory Lane

Oddly, we almost missed this milestone — it wasn’t until the middle of Fashion Week that Jessica and I realized GFY was coming up on a major click on the odometer, and by the time we realized it would happen mid-Oscars, it was too late to plan a fireworks display or a contest or choreograph a flash mob. We can’t believe it’s been this long, and at the same time, it feels like just yesterday that we were covertly putting up one or two posts a day at our desk jobs while also begging people for photo rights. It’s our honor to have pumped out this much content; it’s an even greater privilege that you guys have stuck around to read it, shared the site with your friends and family, and supported us when we needed it most — through births and deaths, Olympics tweet-a-thons, Sarah Michelle Gellar e-mailing us, the Fug Book and the debut of our first novel, Spoiled, and its attendant book signings, which were a highlight of our lives (we will never forget the girl who brought us a map of local Diet Coke establishments, or autographing pictures of J.Lo, Kindle receipts, that one copy of Don Quixote, and the pretty, pretty copies of our hardback baby).

And given how you guys have come all this way with us, we would — if you’ll pardon the pimpage — like to share with you something forthcoming that we’re super, super excited about: the cover of our next novel, Messy, which looks anything but.

Messy, which comes out June 5, 2012, is less a sequel to Spoiled than a follow-up. Brooke co-narrates, Molly is very much present and accounted for, and Brick Berlin still intones things of deepest importance about protein shakes and yoga, of course. But the other POV shifts to Molly’s friend/Teddy’s sister Max. As the book jacket says:

Now that Brooke’s caught a taste of fame and her movie star father’s attention, she wants to launch a blog that will position her as the ultimate Hollywood insider. But between schoolwork, party-planning committee meetings, and spa treatments, she hardly has the time to write it herself…
Enter Max McCormack, an aspiring author with a terrible after-school job pushing faux meat on the macrobiotic masses of La-La Land. Max reluctantly agrees to play Brooke’s ghost-blogger for an impressive salary, and the site takes off, but how long can their lie last? In person, Brooke can’t live up to the intellectual wit of, and Max soon begins to resent hiding her genius behind a bandage dress-wearing blonde. Can the girls work together to stay on top, or will the truth come out and ruin everything they’ve built?

And LOOK HOW PRETTY designer Liz Casal made that cover. It will look so great next to Spoiled. They are kin but not identical, like the Deschanel sisters of book jackets. Or maybe Elizabeth Olsen and one of the twins. Or Beyonce and Solange, although to our knowledge, neither of our books will be wearing this anytime soon.

Thank you again for all the Internet and in-person hugs, the loyalty, and above all, the fun. Can’t wait to see you at 20k, although you may not want to look at me — I SHUDDER to think what my brow furrow will be doing by then. And after the jump, a tribute to the acting sisters who, at least in part, inspired it all. Sniffle. We’ve come so far, we lost them at a rest stop and don’t know where they went.

If you’re new to the site, welcome to Ashley and Courtney Peldon, who were among the first people to inspire us to ask, “Who, what, WHY, when, where, and HOW?!?” They dropped out of sight after 2008, and we miss them terribly, because LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID:

They wore this to a celebrity golf tournament. Which may or may not have been for charity. The idea of anyone wearing this in ANY golf club ANYWHERE except maybe a dingy old pitch-and-putt in deepest San Fernando Valley is hysterical to me. Perhaps that’s why this event apparently no longer happens. And if this golf tournament’s sole purpose was to put ladies dressed as strippers on the fairways, well, then I take it ALL BACK, because NO sport SCREAMS for strippers quite like… golf. No matter what Tiger Woods thinks.

This was also a charity event.

A charity event combined with a store opening, BUT STILL. I hope they raised a lot of money for the BeDazzled Hooter Foundation of America, and the U.S. Fund for Breast Hulas.

I am so confused! That sleeve is almost as tall as Courtney is. Also: Is that an Iron Maiden album cover that Brown has turned into a wearable sleeping bag?

This carousel just got a lot less hopeful.

At least Brown Peldon is endorsing the GFY-approved soda company. See? WE ARE SOULMATES. Fare thee well, Peldon sisters. See you IN OUR DREAMS.

    Sweet jesus, I forgot about them. My eyes, my eyes!

    Congrats on your new book and 10,000!

    Thanks for all the joy your bring to my life. Monday to Friday would be horrific without my period check-ins to see what you’re talking about. My workday was an arid desert before I “met” you….

  2. Jo

    Congrats on your milestone girls! Keep on fugging!

  3. EmSpeaks

    Congratulations on all of it! I can’t wait to read Messy. I enjoyed Spoiled beyond my wildest imagination.

  4. La Fifie

    You girls get me through the insufferably long days at my job. Congratulations and here’s to many more fugs!

  5. Crystal

    Congratulations, Heather and Jessica. It makes me happy to see you guys so successful. To 10,000 more!

  6. Michelle

    Congratulations!! GFY always gives me a well-needed laugh at any point during my day. Encore! Encore!

  7. Stefanie

    Awww congratulations on 10,000! I can’t say how much I’ve enjoyed the site over the years. It seems like only yesterday I mistyped something into Google and stumbled upon this website, some 8ish years ago..2004-2005ish? Thank you so much for getting me through my work day, boring evenings (I like to look back, what can I say?), and the Peldon sisters. (What happened to those crazy girls anyway?!)

    • Dru

      yeah, I did something similar – Google was the kind friend that led me by the click and brought me here, and we’ve never looked back:)

      I still remember when you guys first started blogging for New York Magazine – fun times. And it’s funny that the celebs who do profess to GFY awareness are such good sports about it – didn’t Kirsten Dunst once admit she found the ‘Dr Sunkentits’ anagram of old hilarious?

      Anyway, congratulations, Heather and Jessica, and please allow me to tell you HOW JEALOUS I am of the fact that SMG herself emailed you! I hope you’ll never delete that one :)

  8. Jo

    SMG emailing you? What, WHY, when, where, and HOW?!?

  9. Lisa

    The Messy cover is suuuper cute and I can’t wait to read it. Just like I can’t wait to read your next 10,000 posts!

    Thank you for slogging through so much fug and maintaining sanity & humor throughout. Congratulations!

  10. Jane

    Thanks for being around for 10,000 posts to get me through my week! You have no idea how your daily laughs have helped me get through the some tough times, just by getting me to laugh at some ridiculous belly-baring-shredded-halter-monstrosities (Oh, Peldons, I have MISSED you!). Thanks for inserting the word “fug” into my lexicon and introducing me to the inner workings of both J. Lo and Britney’s minds. THANK YOU, and see on on the other side of your 20,00th (where I will look like the crypt keeper).

    • Kit

      ….and see on on the other side of your 20,00th (where I will look like the crypt keeper).

      Me too bb!!! :)

  11. Kimberly

    Why have I never heard of the Peldon sisters?!
    I haven’t read Spoiled yet but I do own it and am very excited for this and Messy!

  12. klp

    Congrats, ladies!

  13. Hillary

    Congratulations on 10,000! Thanks for always being a bright spot in my day and occasionally making me laugh out loud, to the great confusion of my officemates. You ladies are the best!

    P.S. Can’t wait for Messy!

  14. Phyler

    Don’t forget to grab “”. We need to see some of those blog entries!

  15. Melissa

    Congratulations, I love you both!

  16. katie

    Congrats!! Thank you so much for all the entertainment you have provided me over the past few years (wow. years!) It has made my desk job so much better.

    And I can’t wait for Messy!

  17. Eric Rezsnyak

    Oh, I MISS the Peldons! Thank you for sharing that little sliver of fug history, and congrats on 10,000 posts, ladies. You are must-read mental floss. And thanks for reminding me to download your book before I go on vacation.

  18. ringthing

    The cover is adorable! Can’t wait to read it. Thanks for the 1000s of lols.

  19. MichelleK

    Congrats on 10,000 posts! I check in with your site everyday at work when I need a little pick-me-up! Thanks for all the laughs! Keep it coming!

  20. eliza

    Yay for you both, lovers!

  21. Edith

    Oh, Peldons! Remember when Blonde P was engaged to Crispin Glover? Or did I dream that?

    Congratulations and THANK YOU, Jessica and Heather!

  22. Anna


    Happy milestone and many more :-)

  23. Jess

    I have searched the site in vain – I need the SMG emailed you story, OMGPLEASE!!!!

    Very excited about Messy – I enjoyed the hell out of Spoiled, so pre-ordering asap so it will appear on my kindle like magic!

    Congrats on 10,000 posts!

  24. Beth

    Congrats on 10,000!! I preordered Messy weeks ago and I am impatiently awaiting June so I can get my hands on it.

    And when did this SMG e-mail happen?? How did I miss it!?!

  25. Steph

    HAPPY 10,000! Thank you for this page, which is a daily requirement for many of us! I remember the time I emailed you guys a picture of a woman dressed head-to-toe in leopard print (including hairband!), and you responded that you imagined J-Simp wearing this a few years down the road… (I’m pretty sure she did!) Getting an email back from GFY made me squeal with delight!

    Here’s to at least 10,000 more!

  26. Celia

    Congrats Fug Girls! It’s been a wonderful ride with you. I started reading your blog when I was just shy of 15, and now at 19 I can honestly say you have totally influenced my standards of what’s fug and what’s fab. Thank you so much for that! I salute my imaginary Diet Coke to you.

    And gosh, the Peldons! And Bai Lin. And Phoebe Price. And so many more.

  27. Marian

    Consider yourself internet hugged. Congratulations! Very well done, H & J!!! :)

  28. TaraMisu

    Congrats on the 10,000 ladies!! As others have said, thank you SO, SO much for making my work days bearable. My co-workers think I’m a loon… snorting and choking in my cube… good thing I’m in a corner alone where they CAN’T see me wiping tears of laughter from my eyes.
    So sad that the Peldons have disappeared, they were entertaining and cringeworthy at the same time :D
    I can’t wait for “Messy”! And Fug Madness!

    *air kisses*

  29. Candy

    Courtney has a movie coming out (according to imdb) so maybe she’ll resurface!

    Congrats on all counts, fug girls!

  30. swellcat

    Oh how I miss Brown and Courtney! Guess their famewhoring paid off and now they are settled down with their plastic surgeon husbands only to resurrect themselves for a Real Housewives of Blah Blah Blah. Oh please let that happen!
    Congrats guys! Been reading you guys since the beginning. Can’t wait for Messy!

  31. Kaitlyn

    Congratulations! Your blog has been a bookmark on my browser since it launched, and you’ve given me plenty to giggle about (geriatric punk is still on of my favourite things, ever). Amazing work!

  32. Sandra

    Here’s the post with the SMG mail. BTW how did you know that this was really her? And congrats on 10,000!!!

  33. annabanana

    Congratulations to two writers who are as smart as the Peldon sisters are wacky — as the day is long!

  34. Mary

    Congrats, fug girls! I love you sooo much! Good luck to both of you!

  35. Jane

    Congrats and thanks from NYC. Gah, I remember the Pelton posts! Ah yes, there will always be fodder for GFY, for that I am eternally grateful. xo Jane

  36. Erin

    Congratulations on 10k posts and the new book! I came and saw you guys at a signing last year, can’t wait to see you guys again!

  37. Katharine

    Courney has a (sort of) up to date wikipedia page
    and apparently was in something called “Jesus Sex Scandle” last year.

    Thanks for all the chuckles over the years and look forward to many more!

  38. Sajorina

    CONGRATULATIONS to you both and thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting many smiles in my face and supplying an unlimited amount of laughter every day of my life! You are both loved & appreciated! I whish that this time we could do something special for you, but I guess all we can do is keep supporting you in this crazy adventure! I would also like to thank The Peldon Sisters, wherever they are, for igniting your desire to fug and Diet Coke for keeping you going strong!

    I’m also very happy about “Messy” coming out soon! I love the cover! It’s interesting to me that the “Spoiled” cover is white and the new one’s is black! FABULOUS, ladies!!! God bless & Cheers!

  39. Carrie Ann

    Messy looks beautiful! I’ve read from the very beginning and you should be so proud that the fugs have held such a high level of quality for 10,000 posts! Thanks for making my workday so much more enjoyable. Here’s to the next 10K!

  40. Chaiaiai

    Oh ladies, seriously, we need to buy you both glamorous Joan Collins turbans (for just lounging around) and Diet Coke as a thank you. You have saved many a workday AND give me a reason to love March.

    I too miss Brown Peldon (I completely forgot that C was engaged to Crispin Glover, and now I can’t unsee her pirate costume in my minds eye) and cannot wait for Messy. I am seriously bummed I missed the signing in SF, please please please consider coming to Powell’s in Portland if you can.

  41. Lucille Austero

    Congratulations and big hugs to the Fug Girls. You make fashion So Much Fun.

  42. Danni

    I’ll word my sentiments regarding this post as thus: “WOOOOOOOOO!1!!” CAPS and internet-exclamation marks mightily intended. Congratulations! Will the books (and yourselves) come to the UK anytime soon?

    • Jessica

      We haven’t sold it in the UK yet. Cross your fingers — we’d love to visit!

  43. Alison O'Connell

    Congrats! J’adore you two… I have been secretly reading this site at work for YEARS. I still get busted for laughing out loud now and then – thanks!!

  44. courtney

    Congrats, Fug Girls! You brighten up my workdays so much, and I can’t wait to read Messy. Peldon sisters, if you’re reading this, PLEASE give us all a ray of sunshine in our lives and go outside wearing something ridiculous. It’s the least you can do.

  45. Kathy T

    Congrats on 10,000. I admit to being late to the party as I only found you last year through Tom and Lorenzo’s blog. I enjoy each post and love your wit. Her is to 10,000 more.

  46. Carol Hackler

    Your website has brought me lots of laughs for a few years now. May the blessings of SWINTON rain down from the sky onto you lovely ladies.

  47. Karmen

    Congrats! Looks like I need to finish Spoiled before Messy comes out.

  48. Tori (@eatori)

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for 10 000 smiles that have burst across my face. You are, quite simply, brilliant.

  49. Kate O

    Aw, congrats on the big milestone, ladies! And thanks for the Peldon-fueled blast from the past – I miss them, too. Here’s to many more years of Fuggery! :)

  50. Sarah

    Congratulations! This website has gotten me through my days for so long now…I am not sure how I would keep my sanity without it. Here’s hoping celebs keep dressing wacko for many years to come. Thank you thank you!

  51. NinjaEditor

    Congratulations!! I’ve been enjoying the affectionate snark of the Fug Girls for years and hope it never stops–except briefly, for sandwiches and Diet Cokes.

  52. Gigi

    Congratties, goils! You guys make my days lighter and brighter!

  53. Mischka

    I found the Peldons! Courtney got married in August 2010 (not to Crispin, alas), and her wedding photographs are a DELIGHT. She augmented her hair with an entire mop of bleached blonde extensions, curling down to her waist, her chest was heaved up and out like twin volleyballs, and she sported fungus yellow nail polish. Brown was wearing a shiny acid yellow gown, with a plunging neckline and gathering that made it look like she was covering her chest with shiny seashells. Also, abundant hair glitter. Hopefully Brown’s daily attire, while pursuing a PhD in physchology, is more demure.

    • Edith

      Links? Please?

      • Jane

        Oh please please PLEASE provide links!!!

      • Chaiaiai

        omg, mischka, thank you. i have now spent 10 min clicking through those pics. the thing about the peldons, you gotta love them. they always look genuinely happy…albeit tacky as hell.


        edith, google the name and wedding pictures. i don’t want to link directly to the photographer’s website.

    • Elle

      Link, please? Pretty please?? Pretty fugly please???

      And YAY 10,000 posts! I have read every single one. I dread to think how many hours/days/years of my life I have revelled in fuggery which I might otherwise have spent on matters more productive; but (a) in all honesty I would probably have frittered them away anyhow; and (b) my god, Fug Girls, you make me weep with laughter at the most inopportune times. What would we all do without you?

  54. PK

    Congratulations on your 10K post!

  55. A.J.

    Congrats, ladies!!! Can’t wait for the new book.

    And I am new enough that I missed the Peldons. And I am sorry I missed them!

  56. Mikki

    Big congrats to you both on the the milestone!! I too would be lost without this site to visit during the day, to give me a giggle or two! Thanks for the great writing and look forward to the next 10,000 posts!!

  57. EGG

    Congrats! I couldn’t make it through my workday without you lovely ladies keeping me entertained. Keep up the good work.

  58. What what


  59. Dara

    Congrats on 10k and the new book! You guys have been getting me through the workweek since 2007. Keep up the great work.

  60. Willow

    I found this website when me and a group of friends Googled “Miley Cyrus and her koi carp” to settle an argument about whether she had koi or not, well we never did find out if she did but we spent the evening howling with laughter.

    A very hearty congratulations and I have my fingers crossed for a UK release of Spoiled!

  61. becca

    fuggirls, you made me smile big and happy after a particularly trying couple of weeks. aww, peldons! i miss them! remember their website??? so awesome. congrats, fuggirls, i can’t wait to read your new book this summer by the pool with a mai tai in hand. bliss!!!

  62. m.

    an ugly couch, a plastic glass of boxed wine, and GFY is literally my favorite way to end a day. congratulations!

  63. Ladyblahblah

    Congratulations to you both even if I do secretly hate you for finding a way to make a living by making fun of people’s clothes, which is something I’ve dreamed of since ~1982 when I used to sit in the mall and silently judge people coming out of Chess King and 5-7-9. You should make your next book a manual about how to get out of Cubicleville and do what you love. I’d so buy that.

  64. JRD

    I am a long time reader and I think this is the first time I actually heard Brown Peldon’s real first name!

  65. Elaine

    Congrats on 10,000 posts!! Your site always brightens up my workday!

    Also, I must congratulate you on your pregnancy soothsaying – that Solange post you linked to was from April of last year, and you briefly joked that since Beyonce was laying low, she must be pregnant…. And about 9 months later, BIC was born!

  66. becca

    dear ladyblahblah,

    OMFG!!! 5-7-9! no effing way. remember the clothing store “Saturdays”?

    • Ladyblahblah

      I grew up in Texas and we didn’t have Saturdays (the store, we had the day, of course). 5-7-9, Casual Corner, Foxmoor Casuals. And Chess King and Oak Tree for the boys…I think most of these stores are still actually in existence!

  67. Betty

    Fug Girls, you are rad. Congratulations and thank you!

  68. AMS

    Hooray and congratulations! I first found your blog in the dark days of law school, during which you were indispensable aids to my sanity. Now you keep me from appearing completely clueless about who any of the people on the cover of People and Star Magazine are, not to mention providing Cliffs notes on several television shows that would probably be unbearable without your commentary. Thank you for the thought and work and good humor you so clearly put into your work. I wish you many more posts!

  69. Isabel

    Hurray (x 10.000)! You always make my day.

  70. Jen

    Congratulations!!! Can’t wait to read Messy, and … thank you, you’ve brought me to tears of laughter on many a dark day, (and I learned about many Celebs from you during my nights of no-cable-tv) … hope that you can keep doing what you’re doing, cuz you do it so well!

  71. The Fatling

    The Peldon sisters look like those girls from “Thirteen” if Holly Hunter hadn’t made Evan Rachel Wood see the error of her ways and they started crashing low-level celebrity events.

  72. el

    Thank you Fug Girls for making me laugh and keeping me sane all these years- i’ve been with you since the beginning, and it’s only getting better with time :)

    My favs, since you ask, have always been the dialogues….nothing like a little Karl, TOM CRUISE or La Lopez to brighten my day (although she’d bitchslap me to the curb for putting her last in that list…)

  73. Christine

    Awww. Love you guys! Keep up the good work!

  74. Jen

    Congrats, girls! I follow a lot of blogs, and this is by FAR my favorite one. I love the fashion, adore the J.Lo posts, and probably cracked some ribs snorting with laughter at your fugs of Mean Girls 2, The Client List, and Country Strong. BULL TRUE. :) Keep it all up, please!

    (a much less impressive) J

  75. Genevieve

    Congratulations on 10 000 entries! Amazing. I’ve been reading this blog for years, and it’s still as funny as ever. I’m so glad you took us back to the beginning with the Peldon sisters. Those were always entertaining. It was the gift that kept on giving along with Bai Ling, Phoebe Price, Solange, Aubrey O’Day,… So many fug gems. Keep up the great work!

  76. Kate K

    What a milestone! Congratulations Fug Girls! And thanks for making my day a bit more bearable and funny :D

  77. Bobbi

    Congratulations and Thank-you. You invariably make my day a little brighter.

  78. Elfrieda

    10,000 posts?! Wow, congratulations (on that and on the new book)! Here’s to 10,000 more! And thanks for that little trip down memory lane – Peldon sisters, come back to us! Society needs you more now than ever!

  79. Bevvie Hedstrom

    CONGRATULATIONS, FUGGIRLS! I don’t know what to praise you for first … your taste in fashion, as I am almost always in total agreement with you? How you manage to be funny as a mofo without ever being mean? For keeping the writing fresh? For posting more frequently EVERY DAY than other sites, and with just two writers? What about your endlessly gracious attitude towards Fug Nation? Oh, how about the awesome Friday afternoon links that help us make it through the weekend without you? For “Hola, lovers”? Oh, I love you for so many, many reasons! Thank you, thank you, thank you!


    A Fan

  80. ceecee

    Thank you a 10,000 times for brightening my days. GFY is my secret stress antidote. Long may you post!

  81. me

    Congratulations on the milestone! You guys are the best! Look forward to reading MESSY. Thanks for making this such an entertaining pit stop for all of us…one that we can visit time and again…

  82. eee

    Hooray for GFY! I really don’t know how long I’ve been reading and trolling this site, but it was back in the days of the Peldons and Bai Ling’s Band-Aids of Truth. Ah, good times.

    Thanks for all of the laughs and the fun that is Fug Madness (I can’t wait!). May the fugging continue for many more years.

  83. Alexandria_Kelly


    And thank you, thank you, thank you for making my mornings that much more bearable.

    Love your work!!!

    FYI – this is still my favourite post of all time:

  84. Verodemort

    Congrats fuggirls! Here’s to another 10,000 more! *clinks Diet Coke*

  85. mepe

    Wow, I totally forgot that I missed the sisters Peldon!

  86. vandalfan

    10,000 thanks for all your delightful efforts, including photos that make me say “horse shoes? NO! Whore shoes!”

  87. Charlotte

    Congratulations! This site is my favourite guilty pleasure. Every time I read it, it makes me crave sour cream & onion Pringles.

  88. Dana

    Happy 10,000!!!!!!! The joy that you bring me each day is huge. And I eagerly await Fug Madness each year like it is Christmas. ( I wish my friends would play along with me and start a pool like with football. And on the final day of the Madness hold a party like a Superbowl party with special hor d’ouveres and cocktails, but none will. Sigh.)

  89. Oh Dear

    Congratulations Fug Girls, on 10,000 and on the new book. How do you fit everything in? Are you like Martha and sleep only four hours every night?

  90. coexxi

    Congratulations…. and I can’t wait for your next 10.000 posts! Btw your site really helped me to improve my english – no joking, it isn’t my first language and I read your blog for YEARS, so it is sort of a daily exercise (such a hard one, too ;-) )!!

  91. Fiona K

    10,000 thanks for all the laughs. I look forward to many more. Where are those crazy Peldons now? Seeing them hamming it up for the camera brings back so many memories….all those hours on GFY….all those crackpots that you have introduced us to….Good times!

  92. sarah

    WOW, those Peldon wedding pics are ridiculous. Looks like Courtney had some major implants put in since we last saw her! They do seem happy though – definitely wish they were still making the public rounds. I would much rather see them than the Kardashians everywhere!

    CONGRATULATIONS Heather and Jessica for 10k and the new book!!! Can’t wait to read it!

  93. Shawna

    Been reading pretty much since the beginning (I think I originally got here from TWoP) and have been laughing along with you for years. My sister and I got to meet you at the Spoiled signing at Kepler’s and it’s still a highlight of our young lives. ;) Perhaps someday we can hang out and watch Center Stage. Here’s to flowbies, Twilight Ice Capades, SWINTON, and wearing pants that are properly tailored! Thanks!

  94. Sandra

    Many thanks to both of you for being smart and funny and inviting us along for the ride. I would never have thought that a fashion blog would be a must-see destination for me every day, but you guys are amazing writers and I too snort with laughter in my cubicle. Every FugNational (see! you did it again!) should be blessed with a work partnership like yours. Will we some day get an origin-story on it?

  95. anny

    Congratulations, and thanks for so much literate wit down the years.

  96. Caroleena Stantonova

    Stop the world so they can get off! HORRID CHOICES!

  97. Mialoubug

    Congratulations Fug Girls! Long may you fug for us!

  98. jerkygirl

    YAY!!! I love this blog more than any other, and I too remember the Peldons and the weird birthday cake with the picture of Courtney on it and their foray into perfumerie (sp???) and Chloe Sevigny’s “sweatshorts jumpsuit” (that phrase cemented you into my heart forever) and so many, many, wonderful/horrible fugs. And fabs. Here’s to 10,000+ more posts. We’ll all get old together and move to Miami where we can lounge on the lanai and insult each other and then change into fabulous lounging pajamas to go eat cheesecake in the kitchen together. Congratulations, and we love you!!! :)

  99. marcia

    Congrats on 10,000, fug girls!!!!

    I have followed you for what seems like forever….since the days of Peldon. You once gave me an lol on a facebook post and responded to my email comparing someone to Stringbean….these are highlights to me! I run a fairly elaborate Fug Madness contest at work and I give out prizes, and this has made me wildly popular, so Thank You for that (except, leave Lindsay out of it this year, ok?)

    I’ve been reading your site for years. I’m talking back when you didn’t have any advertising and there were three posts a day. I appreciate your awesome humor and dedication to good grammar. I get an hour to myself every day and I spend 30 minutes of it with you two. You’ve made me laugh so hard, I’ve snorted wine up my nose more often than I care to admit. I feel like we’ve been friends for years. Congratulations on your 10K post. Please come up to Seattle so I can take you two out for a drink. :)

    Thank you for the fugtastic memories, ladies! Congratulations and next stop…100,000!

    AW. Sniffles. You guys are the best. Thank YOU guys for making it all possible. Fug Nation 4ever!

    Thanks, Fug Girls, for brightening my days with delicious fuggery and the occasional dose of sartorial goodness. May you get 10,000 times the joy you two have brought me and the rest of Fug Nation back in spades. I look forward to being with you for your 20,000th post and beyond. Long live the fug and the Fug Girls.

    I discovered GFY about a year ago, and still can’t get enough! You guys brighten my days, and quite often make me laugh out loud at my desk (and get weird looks from my co-workers who obviously haven’t seen this site!). Much love to you both! Here’s to 10,000 more posts!

  105. Erin

    Congrats! You guys are the best. Seriously – THE BEST. You’ve made so many people’s work days fly by a little faster and funnier! Thanks for the perpetual laughs.

  106. EmVic

    Congratulations on your 10000!

    I shotgun the book shop I work at as the location for the start of your book tour in Australia!

  107. Iris

    Congratulations! You two are the funniest and best kind-snarkers™ ever. And after all these years GFY is still my favourite website that has successfully distracted me and made me snort laugh through good and sad times. Thank you. :)

  108. Tripta

    Your site is one of the reasons I stay up way past midnight (I stay in India, big time difference). Thanks for the laughs! Congratulations on the 10k, and luck for many future milestones! :) :)

  109. Kara K

    Congrats on the 10,000th post! The new book looks awesome and I can’t wait to read it on my summer holiday in Spain!

    Many happy fugturns!

  110. Mahastee

    Congratulations on 10,000 posts of perfectly spelled wit and snark and fun. You guys are CRAMAZING!!

    I can’t even remember what the internet was like without you. What on earth did I do before I knew about the Peldons, Drunkface, and Fugbe Price?

    Love you forever and ever and can’t wait for the next 10,000 <3

  111. TonyG

    I’m coming to this party late, but Happy 10,000th Heather and Jessica! Ooooh…that makes you sound so old. LOL. Thanks for the many, many laughs, snickers, guffaws and spit-takes you’ve given all of us. And here’s to the nation of fuggers you’ve inspired! Much love to you both.

  112. Peachsiki

    Congrats on the post! but I was scrolling down and one of my coworkers came up behind me as I hit the first image… don’t know if he saw it but it was fairly awkward for me. Let me just say, I’m so happy to have remembered this site when my friend told me about it, I often forget to check out her recomendations.

    ps. I think I may have one of the dresses you fugged in the early days of this site, I hope I’m styling it better than which ever actress was wearing it!

  113. Kris

    Congratulations, girls! You are the best!
    Thanks for being so normal, and loving sports (even if it is the Steelers), and introducing me to so many more adjectives (cramazeballs, much?) and for being literature people and for actually answering emails!, and making me laugh all the time!
    Here’s to at LEAST 10,000 more posts!!!

  114. Joyce

    Congratulations on your success! Here is wishing for 10 20 30K more posts. I look forward everyday to opening your blog to gasp, or giggle, or to guffaw (sometimes all three during one post!) Keep up the great work!!

  115. Ms. Chanandler Bong

    10,000 posts! I remember only getting 1 or 2 fug posts a day when I was in college and constantly refreshing for more…Now I read all your glorious posts while I sit at MY desk job. Long live the fug!

  116. JanetP

    Somehow, it never crossed my mind to wonder what prompted this blog. And now that I’ve seen, I can’t unsee …

    Thanks for the hours of entertainment you’ve provided — always truthful, never hurty — and, in a roundabout way, for getting me involved with doing crisis mapping through the Standby Task Force. I bet that’s not a combination many people can say! You two are the best.

  117. Zoe

    Wow, I cannot believe it’s been 10,000 posts… I have been reading your site for YEARS! Congratulations, you always make me laugh and I love how you’ve expanded the site over the years. I send my Mum the link to your Fug The Episodes of Hart of Dixie every week and she thinks they are hilarious :)
    Here’s to 10,000 more x

  118. Rubee

    Happy 10 0000! The last Stacy Kleiber post is the funniest thing I ever read. Keep up!

  119. Alice

    Heather & Jess, I just wanted to say…I’ve been reading GFY all the way from Australia for years now and have never left a comment, yet have spent so many hours giggling aloud to your hilarious words. You both write with such humour and intelligence, in a way that’s just so in tune with my thinking it’s frightening. So thank you for my guilty Sunday pleasure, my favourite form of procrastination, and embodiment of all things funny in fashion. I look forward to reading (and laughing aloud to) many more posts in the future!

  120. Rachel

    Hooray for 10,000! I only started following two years ago when searching for a photo of Oksana Baiul (don’t ask), but I was immediately addicted. I can’t wait to see which loons will be running rampant at 20,000!

    P.S. Didn’t Courtney Peldon play the cousin/cheerleader, Debbie O’Shay, in Little Giants?

  121. Madeleine

    Ladies – thank you so much for years of laughter and fuggery!! Your writing makes the days brighter and my keyboard soggier (from all the hilarity induced drink spillage) :P Please keep writing forevs – you are fabulous! Here’s to another 10,000 posts :)

    Long distance fug-love from another fan in Australia x

  122. NYCGirl

    To quote you, Heather and Jessica: “Never leave us.”

  123. Akit


    Congrats on your ongoing success, you two are amazing. All your hardwork is very much apreciated and I love GFY more than anything else on the WWW.

    Love from London.

  124. Claire

    Congratulations ladies – you have brightened many days!

  125. Hima

    Congratulations on your 10,000th post! (Plus all the ones you have posted since). No other blog has stayed as consistently hilarious as you have. Fug Madness is my favorite thing ever – I love it almost as much as I love Pacey.

    Another congratulations for the new book! When you tour, can you please come to Chicago this time? I would love to come meet you, even if I know I’ll be super awkward when I do.
