Scary Lucy
« on: March 12, 2018, 12:13:51 »
I don't know if many are old enough to remember "I love Lucy" or perhaps you have seen it in re-runs.

This statue of her was next to a children's playground.

As Ricky would to say, "Honey, I'm home .... holy sh3t!"

MM,

Your link takes me to an empty Wiki Page.

But, yeah, that is some ugly statue. I cannot find a single similarity to Lucille Ball in it.

Other than her bottle of Veta Vita Vegimite.  ;)

For some reason, on that empty Wiki Page, you have to click:

"Did you mean: Lucille Ball (sculpture)?"

That's because it doesn't recognize the final parenthesis as part of the web address.  If you wrap it with [url [/url] it works. One of the brackets is deliberately missing, otherwise it wouldn't show in the post.

I remember watching 'I Love Lucy', as a matter of fact, my granddaughter, who is only 8 yrs old, asked me 3 weeks ago to down load all her seasons, she loves it!  But that statue doesn't look anything like her!
