British Rim: The Most Terrifying Thing You’ll See Today Is a Giant Colin Firth Statue

Some days you wake up happy:  the sun is shining, there's a cool summer breeze, and mama cooked breakfast with no hog. You're thinking, 'Today is going to be a good day.'

Then, the internet happens and some jerks shove a giant frigging statue of Colin Goddamn Firth in your face. Then you remember that babies will die. War will rage in far-flung places. And somewhere a lost puppy will get a pack of hungry coyotes.

Who would even do such a thing? British women. That's who.

The UKTV channel Drama (We see what you did there. Clever.) constructed a large statue of Firth in Hyde Park's Serpentine Lake as a tribute to a scene from the 1995 miniseries adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (Without Zombies), where Firth's character similarly emerged from a lake to satisfy a herd of rutting British ladies (we assume).

Isn't one of Pacific Rim's Kaiju's available to come and take this thing down? Please? Just try getting some sleep this week. [H/T:  The Guardian]
