Encyclopedia > Coyote Ugly

Coyote ugly is a term made famous by the film of the same name (see below). It describes a person, usually a female, who is so physically undesirable that her partner, usually a male, is willing to gnaw off a limb she is sleeping on in order to escape rather than to risk waking her. The male will usually find himself in this situation when, after a night of heavy drinking, he wakes up the next morning in the bed of a woman he does not remember meeting and has no desire of getting to know better.


The term arises from the behavior of coyotes, which (among other canines), when caught in a jaw-trap will gnaw off a leg in order to escape death. Binomial name Canis latrans Say, 1823 The Coyote (Canis latrans) is a member of the Canidae (the dog family) and a relative of the domestic dog. ... Genera Alopex Atelocynus Canis Cerdocyon Chrysocyon Cuon Dusicyon Fennecus Lycalopex Lycaon Nyctereutes Otocyon Pseudalopex Speothos Urocyon Vulpes Canidae is the family of carnivorous and omnivorous mammals commonly known as canines. ... The human activity of animal trapping consists of hunting for animals to obtain their furs, which are then used for clothes and other artifacts, or sold / bartered (see fur trade). ...

The Coyote Ugly Saloon first opened on January 27, 1993 in New York City, after New York University alumnus Liliana "Lil" Lovell eschewed a life on Wall Street for a life in bartending. Having held several bartending jobs during college where Lovell perfected her unique routine of dancing on the bar, singing, and challenging customers to drinking contests, she applied her business model of "beautiful girls + booze = money" to Coyote Ugly. She began hiring girls and training them in the wild routine, which included such antics as chugging alcohol, lighting it on fire, and then shooting it out of their mouth. While some girls were good at singing, others good at dancing, and others good at yelling, Lovell found that not all the girls were talented in each of the three aspects, so she often paired girls with complementary abilities.
