Oxycanthously ugly. Wow, there's only appearance of this on the Internet: http://www.coe.uga.edu/~smago/Vocabulary_Games/Strategy.htm.

"oxycanthous - oks'e-kan'thas (having very sharp thorns or spines). I got many scratches walking across the field due to the abundance of oxycanthous plants"

There are a couple of links. One is http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-12/bill/sen/sb_0801-0850/sb_810_bill_20120126_status.html. If you Google SB 810 you will discover other links. Senator Leno also has his own link: http://sd03.senate.ca.gov/category/tags/sb-810.
