There is now no question of which Glee
character reigns supreme.
Sue Sylvester, and the iconic "redwood of a woman" who plays her, Jane Lynch, have together been immortalized at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, where a wax figurine of Sue in her signature red track suit, sternly clutching her trusty megaphone, now stands.
Lynch was on hand for the unveiling of Sue's waxen tribute, and after getting over her initial shock ("I feel like I'm seeing myself in a coffin or something"), she thanked the artist for "minimizing [her] ass," and then told the crowd, "Let's hear it for Sue Sylvester!"
What would Sue say if she could see this eternal memorial to her overwhelming awesomeness? Glee
co-executive producer Ian Brennan, the great mind behind so many of Sue's evil-isms, attempted to answer that very question in his introduction to Jane Lynch, producing some of the best Sue quotes to never actually come out of Sue's mouth:
Brennan imagined Sue would relish in the fact that the statue cost "a tidy sum that spent otherwise could put a dozen inner-city kids
through college. Not to mention all that wax that could be better spent
tidying up unibrows everywhere, or used to snatch up stray pubes from the
bikini lines of overweight Slavic women."
If she could be present at the unveiling, Brennan mused that "Sue would say, 'No
way, you are going to make me into a statue. Wax me up, bitches!'"
He then went on to introduce Jane Lynch, "a woman of such cultural importance that everywhere she poops should be made into a national park."

season 2 spoiler for us: There's a neon tracksuit in Sue's future. NEON.
