The grotesque way in which the estate attorney mangled my husband's will has resulted in extra work on my part which could have been avoided, and leaves me emotionally-devastated and wanting to puke nails.

How'zat?

The origin of the word grotesque is the Italian grotta, meaning «cave», and the two related words, la grotesca and grotesco. These latter were coined to describe a certain kind of ornamental painting first discovered during excavations in the late fifteenth century.

Looks like grotesque is actually a form of art.

I'm not sure if this ancient coin I unearthed is a groat, but it certainly is groat-esque.

Watching my Volunteers blow a 20-point lead to OSU (and the officials) was a grotesque experience.

Laden with melancholy,
flirting with the solace of death;
my thoughts are often turning
to ideas of the grotesque.

edit: Not a sentence, but...Well, there it is.

He knew that snarl, that familiar sound. As he looked up, he saw her mouth, covered with foam, devouring his reputation in a grotesquely ravenous manner, as the hyena does a carcass.
