In 1992’s ‘Jurassic Park’, Jeff Goldblum’s character makes a scathing statement against the park’s owner for not considering the consequences of what they've created. He says, “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.”

It’s a great line that also foreshadows the disaster about to unfold. However, nothing can prepare you for what you're about to see here, and clearly, the designers of these items didn’t ask themselves this question either.

We can’t fault them for their craftsmanship and skill though, just their lack of judgment for aesthetics. It can be summed up best as the phrase ‘Awful Taste But Great Execution’ (ATBGE) based on the subreddit of the same name. And Bored Panda has collected the most garish but technically flawless things from it for all to see. When you’re ready, check out parts one, two and three as well!

The subreddit currently has 1.5M members and counting, so it’s clear that people are enjoying the designs in their own special way. It’s hard to look away from some of the stuff, not because it’s great looking or anything. It’s more like watching a car crash—horrific but enthralling at the same time. 

The wreck of ideas and lack of taste makes us wonder what was going through the minds of the creators as they realized their ideas from start to finish. But we’ll never know for sure where they draw their inspiration from. The only thing that’s certain is that they have the skills to pull off their works.

It can take some time to learn a craft and become the master of it, but it’s rewarding in the end. In his book, The Story of Philosophy, writer and philosopher Will Durant wrote, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." 

He probably never envisioned seeing every type of clothing imaginable rendered in denim and awkwardly renamed with the prefix from ‘jeans’. Now we have all kinds of fashion atrocities and things that should not be, with names such as jandals, joots or a jong (the last one is best left to the imagination).

But the creators here have practiced enough and, although questionable in taste, we can look at their work in a different light than what’s immediately in front of us. Either from their need to create within or even being commissioned to build something, they started from almost nothing and made something of it. And like it or not, you are seeing their works online.

Honestly I like it. And Victorians traditionally have a bright ( though admittedly not neon) color palette. Looks like a fun eccentric artist would live here.

Far be it from me to question the anatomy of a reverse mermaid, but... whoever the artist is, they do NOT understand human anatomy, because the right leg, knee bent, makes no goddamned sense. There's no way a thigh bone works like that. Does an up-vote mean I hate this and the list is about horrible shite that gets voted as horrible, or do I need to down-vote this to show my dislike for the content???
