Frankly, it is an embarrassment that we, the Colin Firth–as–Mr. Darcy–loving public, have waited almost twenty years for this momentous occasion. But yes, finally, the dream has been made real: Colin Firth’s famous Pride and Prejudice lake moment — the one where his wet eighteenth-century undershirt clings to him just so — has been made into a giant statue. It is twelve feet tall, and it is sitting in the middle of London’s Serpentine lake. Sorry, can’t finish this post, we have to fly to London now.
