  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  bletcherous  /blech'*-r*s/  adj  Disgusting  in  design  or 
  function;  esthetically  unappealing.  This  word  is  seldom  used  of  people. 
  "This  keyboard  is  bletcherous!"  (Perhaps  the  keys  don't  work  very  well 
  or  are  misplaced.)  See  {losing},  {cretinous},  {bagbiting},  {bogus},  and 
  {random}.  The  term  {bletcherous}  applies  to  the  esthetics  of  the  thing 
  so  described;  similarly  for  {cretinous}.  By  contrast,  something  that 
  is  `losing'  or  `bagbiting'  may  be  failing  to  meet  objective  criteria. 
  See  also  {bogus}  and  {random},  which  have  richer  and  wider  shades  of 
  meaning  than  any  of  the  above.
