Another ugly phone, but one for charity

LG special edition looks diseased

MobileWhack

We've seen some over-pimped phones in our day, but this has got to be one of the ugliest. And, believe us, that's saying a lot .

It's not just the garishness that typically defines these monstrosities. In this case, the special-edition LG "Fusic" handset looks like it has some kind of disease, thanks to--what else?--an overabundance of Swarovski crystals .

We can't rag on this item too much, though, because it's been released for a charity event. MobileWhack says the special Fusic will be auctioned this June to raise funds for the Jermaine Dupri Foundation. We just wish that good taste and good causes didn't have to be mutually exclusive as often as they are.
