Matt Bevin announced in a video where he, for some reason compared himself to Wiley E. Coyote, that he would be auctioning off the rights to push the handle that blows up a building in downtown Frankfort. While this is a surprising move from a PR perspective, a politician openly making themselves look like a supervillain, but fans of Hey Kentucky are coming together to make a dream come true occasional co-host, Ricky Jones.
A go fund me account set up by a fan states it’s explicit objective is to raise enough funds to allow the famed Frankfort fleerer Ricky Jones to have the privilege of depressing a plunger (not the toilet kind) and fulfill a lifelong desire to destroy a part of the state’s capital, leveling it to the ground.
If all goes according to plan Ricky Jones will have the chance to paint his face a la Batman’s Joker and Governor Bevin will stand by his side, dressed as The Penguin. Jones will then have the opportunity to say “and here we go” pressing the handle down and creating what must be a sound and sight he’s seen every evening when he closes his eyes for nightly slumber, a Frankfort building imploding, toppled by his own hand. Please consider donating to help make this dream come true.
