The Great British Bake Off contestant Paul Jagger was asked by the judges to make a bread sculpture. So he made this incredibly detailed and artistically amazing lion, no big deal.

If you're British or a weird American who uses the dark web to watch overseas cooking shows, then you know it's Great British Bake Off season, which seeks the best amateur baker in the U.K. The theme of this week's show was bread, and one of the challenges was to construct a 3-D sculpture made entirely of bread. Paul Jagger, a prison warden from Wales, made a lion that has as much character as a real lion.

Judge Paul Hollywood gave a special commendation to Jagger, never before done in six seasons of GBBO, calling the lion the best bread sculpture he's ever seen. Random people on the Internet were also blown away. Naturally, the volume of memes has risen more than, uh, bread.
