After three years, Celoron, NY's "We love Lucy! Get Rid of this Statue" Facebook group is finally getting somewhere.


10% Lucille Ball, 90% nightmare about someone poisoning you.

Lucille Ball's hometown of Celoron, NY has a problem — a garish, life-size bronze of Lucy that sits in the town's Lucille Ball Memorial Park like some land-bound gargoyle. Residents and town officials alike have considered the piece an issue since it was installed in 2009, because Lucille Ball apparently didn't look like a murder-eyed version of the Coney Island logo when she was alive. But fixing the statue has been at a standstill, because according to city officials, sculptor Dave Poulin was asking for $8,000 to $10,000 to update it.
