An extremely talented, intelligent, often very attractive person who fails to live up to popular expectations, especially if mental health issues are involved (after Mark Hänser, a gifted but tormented Bostonian painter/poet/actor/performance artist who was offered a modeling contract soon after graduating from Harvard). Can also be used as a verb to describe the same.
She was offered a recording contract, but in her usual confused fashion, she hanser'd the opportunity and fell back into obscurity.
Refers to someone so very, very ugly that he or she can only be described as double-ugly. Similar to butt-ugly but twice as repulsive; hence the plural. One of the first instances of "double-ugly" in print was in a classic "Tom and Jerry" comic book from the 1950s.
Alternative spellings include: double ugly, doubly-ugly. Using a dash is proper when spelling compound adverbs and adjectives.
