Maddox is an American humorist, satirist, Internet personality, and author. He gained fame on the Internet in the early 2000s for his opinion-oriented website, The Best Page in the Universe, which he still maintains. His first book, The Alphabet of Manliness (2006), became a New York Times bestseller. He was born George Ouzounian, and is of Armenian descent. He says that his pen name comes from the 1980s anime Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01. He is a graduate of Woods Cross High School in Woods Cross, Utah; he also attended the University of Utah, but he does not hold a degree.

Maddox started The Best Page in the Universe in 1997. The majority of the content is satirical: it focuses on society, pop culture and masculinity, enthusiastically endorses chauvinism, and expresses dislike towards child, senior citizens, women's rights activists, vegetarians, environmentalists, hippie, celebrities, personalities, George W. Bush, Mac users, goths and jocks. Many of Maddox's articles include illustrations of elderly people being fired to the Sun, hippies being killed, and Maddox's testicles (drawn larger than basketballs). The site also criticizes hate mail the website has generated, breaking the e-mails down and ridiculing fallacious logic and writing errors. Maddox reported in 2006 that the site's online store earned enough for him to "stay above water."

Maddox is reported to have worked as a programmer for a telemarketing company until 2004. On June 6, 2006, Maddox appeared at the San Diego Comic Con with his comic book, The Best Comic in the Universe.

Maddox's first book, The Alphabet of Manliness, was published in 2006 and reached number one on the Amazon.com sales chart. The book is illustrated and has a chapter-length entry for each letter in the English alphabet regarding a "manly" topic (for example, N is for Norris, Chuck). Maddox announced in 2010 that he is writing another book in which he will critique children's artwork. The book is inspired by [http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=irule two] [http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=irule2 articles] on the site.
