My sisters and I will often use the phrase,
"So ugly it is cute".
Basically, if something is rather homely, but endearing, it is "so ugly it is cute".
I have some of that in my home.
I found these plastic banks at the Goodwill a while back.
They are marked
ROYALTY IND. OF FLA, INC. 1974
I am guessing you would have to pry their heads off to get any of your coins back out of them....
and I really wouldn't want to destroy them....
because they really are rather cute....
in an ugly sort of way.
