The residents of Celoron, New York, can sleep easier knowing their chances of being murdered by a freakishly terrifying Lucille Ball statue have decreased by about 27%. A new "friendlier" Lucille Ball statue has been resurrected in place of the old one, which looked less like the late I Love Lucy actress and more like an evil demon who would devour your soul. Oops!

Whatever you do, DONT BLINK. #LucilleBall #LucilleBallStatue #DoctorWho #WeepingAngels #Blink

Not only did the original statue look nothing like Ball, but its "terrifying" demeanor made it a social media sensation. Locals even started a Facebook group calling the statue a "nightmare" and asking for its removal.
