~ You may want to go there and take a look, but believe me you don’t want to find yourself there. Hardly a pleasing thought to be included in a website that describes itself as ‘Home of the facially inept...’.
~ So, what exactly will you find at Mingers.com, apart from relief when you realise you aren’t there? Loads and loads of pictures of people that don’t conform to societies image of ‘normal’.
~ You are greeted on entry to Mingers.com by a homepage of cheesy smiles and ‘odd’ looking people. The homepage gives a realistic example of the sites content, so if you don’t find anything remotely amusing about it, then i’d suggest you make a swift exit.
~ If your curiosity gets the better of you as mine did, (for the sole purpose of research of course) then you will find navigation around the site very easy. You can click on any of the homepage piccies or any of the links listed on the left hand side. The pages are pretty quick to download.
~ It’s not entirely necessary to go into fine detail of every link and where it leads. At the end of the day, whichever path you choose, you are going to find an array of real life people, and have your fingers crossed that you are not one of them! But, i’ll give you an idea of what’s there.
~ In the Gallery you will find further sections that class various types of 'Mingers'. ‘Minging Look-a-likes’ compares ‘normal’ people to celebrities. These are quite amusing and you could go as far as to say almost flattering rather than insulting. But then again, being compared to Shaggy (the ginger guy from Scooby Doo) or Captain Pugwash might not be everyone's idea of a compliment.
~ ‘Dancing Mingers’ is equally amusing. Simply taking advantage of the strange facial expressions people display whilst dancing, it’s not offensive, just a little unfortunate for those who appear there. We all have dodgy photos laying around taken at office parties or family gatherings. Might be the time to hide them?
~ ‘Multiple Mingers’ are group shots. Again quite harmless and more often than not, displaying people pulling strange faces rather than actually having strange faces. More photos to hide way?
~ ‘Classic’ is perhaps the section that comes closest to being 'off'. No, it’s not obscene material, but it’s cashing in on real pictures of real people of which someone has decided don’t fit the ‘normal’ visually pleasing image. You can decide for yourself, but I definitely wouldn’t like to find myself or anyone I know there.
~ You can vote for Minger of the week or submit a Minger for display at the site. You can send a Minger to a friend, or even purchase Minger merchandise. If you do happen to find yourself there, you can contact agony uncle Gert, by e-mail or phone message for advice/support.
~ All in all, not a bad site for some light amusement. I have not come across any content that I feel is totally offensive, but that’s not to say the material found here will be to everyone's liking. Worth a look though....and hide all those dodgy photos you have laying around or you could be the next Minger of the week!
I agree, not the place you want to be seen - received the URL at work about six months back, certainly amused all but the most prudish in the office. Excellent op, informative and detailed - you may want to mention that surfers can submit their own photo collection (your mingers link), nnot that I have indulged in such activities myself....Bruce (bwsr2)

I ahd a look at this place the other day, unfortunatley it got me into trouble, as I was viewing it whilst at College and I laughed out a bit too loud, and drew attention to myself!! :o(
