the quality of being stupid, obnoxious, or incompetent
Without a tremendous effort expension, it would be impossible to find a more complete, well-rounded, ever-flowing fountain of fuggheadedness as we see in Russell Harold Woodman.
If you are a fugghead, you’ll have a better magazine if you suppress your fuggheadedness, but this is pretty hard to do.
The reason I’m mildly obsessed with CRACKLE is the innate fuggheadedness of the contents.
The Second or Little Exclusion Act, so called, was a piffling affair at the NYCon II when the con committee briefly refused to allow any attendees who had not paid for the banquet ($7) to listen to the dinner speakers from the balcony overlooking the hall. But this was resented rather as fuggheadedness than malice.
Boggs thinks the convention should rotate around the country, have an ‘orderly progression westward’, so that people from all localities can attend from time to time. I, as a staunch Californian, wish to urge that the convention ALWAYS be held on the East Coast. We have enough indigenous fuggheadedness out here without importing more of it.
Our weekly meetings are held in a little hall downtown, and every member is required to attend. Generally, we devote a certain amount of time to discussing each other’s past fuggheadedness, and give testimony of our thanks at escaping from the clutches of organized fandom. Sometimes we have a little program with speakers, and we often invite fuggheads from other parts of the country to be our guests. You see, we have a great number of correspondents here and abroad, and many of us now print up little Fuggheads Anonymous magazines for general distribution. Our membership is limited to seventy-five at the present time, but we have about forty-two on our waiting list. Perhaps next year we'll hold a sort of get-together or convention. So, you see, I have found it easy to forget fandom. Fuggheads Anonymous has given me a new outlook.
Fugghead: someone who is stupid or hopelessly confused. Like entropy, fuggheadedness tends to increase.
Vince was once a fiery and powerful writer,…not given to suffering fools gently and a strong critic of fuggheadedness as he perceived it.
