 for bletcherous
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  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.
