Beautifully ugly.

Grotesque is a word commonly known as something that could mean odd, distorted, ugly or repulsive.

At the same time though, it could also mean bizarre or so shocking and horrible it could be fantastic.

And though rarely thought of this was in English language, it could mean both beautiful and ugly at the same time.
The picture of the woman attempting to protect the baby from a running car was an unforgettable and grotesque image to any who had seen it happen...

Something that is so vile and disgusting that any other word can not describe it. Just saying "gross" is not enough when something is grotesque. An example of something that is grotesque would be scat porn with midgets and fat people. Or a violently deformed animal that drools and has visibly obvious diseases. When you see something that is so repulsive that you can't think of a word to describe it, the word 'grotesque' is appropriate.
The morbidly obese woman pulled down her panties and sharted liquid feces all over the supermarket floor in a grotesque display of horror.

The horse had a missing leg, mangled face and tumors bulging all over it's grotesque body.

While the man waited in line at the bank, his eyeball suddenly fell out of its socket and green liquid oozed down his face to make him a grotesque display of eye-failure.

- a word that pretentious people use to sound smart in a douchey sorta way. You can do it too! It's easy: All you have to do is substitute the word "gross" with "grotesque," and you too can sound like a huge douche with superior intelligence.
"Oh my God Debra, that dress Kelly's wearing is so grotesque."

"I do say, Inglorious Basterds was quite a grotesque movie."

"I can't believe you just farted in my mouth, bro. That was truly grotesque. And hot. Do it again."

A person who picks their toenails and throws them at people. They have disgusting feet and their big toes also point outwards.

They also fart around other people and like to annoy.
