Ok, you win on both ingenuity and sheer ugliness, alone.

Well, i don't know if mine is ugle enough, and it is a barley crusher, but it is kinda ugly. I took apart a dead cordless drill, used a pc power supply, few screws and hose clamps and came up with this
and just for good measure, i use a bilge pump to recirculate cold water through my wort chiller,

I've been wondering how you switch the pc power supply on for use out of the computer. Any links?

I have super old style pc power supplies that don'et require shorting to turn on, its the AT style. the newer ones(ATX) require usually 2 pins on the connector to be shorted together to turn them on. you will have to look up which type you have. the other thing i did learn is that i have to put a load on the 5v side of the power supply to keep some internal overload switch from shutting it off. but it definatley can be done, and its usally not hard finding a power supply or two for free.

Usually you jump (paperclip works fine) the green and black wires together on an ATX PSU.

Tight clumping, no, cool square bucket, yes!!! Good job and nice to see someone who like to work on their arm muscle by going the "analog" route.
