Actress Lucille Ball, who was most famous for her 1950s show I Love Lucy, grew up in the town Celoron, which is in western New York. In 2009, officials erected a bronze statue to honor her. It shows a scene from an episode of her signature show.
The people of Celoron love Lucy. But they hate the statue. It's so ugly that they want it torn down. The New York Daily News reports:
"It looks like a monster," a Celoron man championing the cause told the Daily News. “It not only does not look like Lucy, it doesn’t look human. And at nighttime it’s even scarier."
He has a point. But look into the hungry eyes of that statue. Do you really think that it's safe to try to pull it down?
