Judge Judy has got a ponytail now and other bizarre things that have happened today
Just kidding, there's nothing else quite as bizarre that's happened today.
This is it. The only thing.
Judge Judith Sheindlin has been a solid part of the national (and hell, global) psyche for many years now.
After all, who among us hasn't settled down at 2.30pm on a Wednesday to listen to her rip into some lad from Brooklyn who hasn't paid his landlord $27 after failing to use a mattress protector?
No one. That's who.
Judge Judy is an icon. Her image is instantly recognisable.
Her wry smile when she's taking the piss out of somebody. Her expertly pressed robes. Her tight bob.
That was until recently when Judy said goodbye to her no-nonsense do and opted for something a little more... chill.

Look at it there, swept to the back, tied in a bobbin, pushing the hair from her eyes and ultimately savagely killing the Judge Judy we have known and loved for decades.
Where is she gone? We may never see her again.
Or we will and this isn't really a big deal at all, tbh. Whichever.
People were, understandably, quite surprised by Judy's do, mainly because they were shocked by the change and not because they didn't think she looked stunning - as she always does.
Here's what they said:
