Beloved actress and comedian Lucille Ball is getting a long-overdue tribute in her hometown.
Celoron, New York, previously tried to honor Ball with a statue in 2009, and it went over about as well as Lucy’s stint in the candy factory.
The statue was dubbed "Scary Lucy" because — well, just look at it. Even the original artist admitted he didn't quite capture Ball's essence and apologized for the sculpture.
