Over the weekend, aerial walker Nik Wallenda made history by walking on a high wire across the Grand Canyon (Arizona's Little Colorado River Gorge, to be exact). You can watch highlights of "Skywire," his history-making trek, here: Our favorite part was a quick little sprint at the end that resulted in fingernails across the country being bitten off up to the bloody nubs.
Of course, that's not all that happened this weekend. Far more important (obviously) was the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog competition, where a lovable mutt named Walle took home the top prize. Fusion gathered the celebrity uglies together and asked them to weigh in* on Wallenda's feat. Here is how they reacted, in pictures.
*We did no such thing.
Penny, an Avon saleswoman and mother of three, is verklempt.
Grovie's time in the slammer couldn't prepare him for the shock of watching 'Skywire.'
Ellie Mae, a small-town girl with big-city dreams, finds the whole thing rather distasteful.
Mayzie Brown, a retired contortionist and former runway model, could give Nik Wallenda a run for his money.
Scamp, a fixture on the community theater circuit, would rather face beauty than the threat of an untimely death.
Top dog Walle, a war veteran and Taco Bell franchise owner, looks to the sky with trepidation.
