hid9

clipping; adjective
unappealing or unattractive to a great degree
 
The word is used as a shortened version of the word hideous for two main reasons. The first being that a point can be gotten across faster through the deletion of a syllable. Secondly, emphasis is brought upon the word hid since it stands out as something uncommon. Once the meaning of hid is discerned, more thought is brought to question why something is particularly hideous.
Etymology : clipping from the word hideous
