KSR Needs To Top Casey Anthony Dunk Booth


Of all the states, why did Kentucky have to be the one to feature this booth?  Embarrassing.

In a bit of twisted and sad news that perpetuates a terrible news story (and yes, I know this little blog post that only a couple people will bother to read is still considered perpetuating the story), the Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair featured a Casey Anthony Dunk Tank.  The attraction has now been shut down by the clubs officials.  Inside the prison-bars sat a woman impersonating Anthony in jail-garb.  Two targets awaited the patron’s balls – “guilty” and “innocent”.  If you hit one, the ‘actress’ falls into the water like any other dunk tank.

The problem with this tank was that, to quote the club officials, it “had probably gone a bit too far“.  I’d say so.  While the club didn’t create the tank, it did promote it on twitter and facebook.  The fact that someone took their time and money to construct an attraction that exploits the death of a child for profit is disgusting.  It’s also disgusting that people in American are more worried about Anthony than other important issues across the world, such as the Horn of Africa’s drought.  But I digress.

We here at KSR would like to announce our own fair!  It will take place at this location: ehwrone and at this time: vreen.  You have to unscramble those to find out the details, so hurry up and do that or you may miss the party.  Since the Casey Anthony dunk tank is totally out of the question, we decided that we must top it with a much more fitting attraction that the people of Lexington/Kentucky would enjoy.

Here are some ideas for the KSR Dunk Tank booth:

Matt Jones – KSR writers get priority in line, but the premise is simple: you throw a ball, and if you hit Matt in his toupe, he falls in.  If you knock the toupe off, you get another free round.  (just kidding, those beautiful locks are real…you jelly, Trump?)

– The Triumvirate (Forde, Thameltoe, O’Neil) – In this engineering-masterpiece, the three amigos sit on separate levers.  If you hit the target below each one, they fall.  The catch?  The tank is empty.  The other catch?  If you hit Forde in the crotch, all three fall in together, with Thamel being the meat of that love-sandwich when they land in an empty tank.

– Ricky Pitino and Karen Sypher – This one doubles as a food booth, using the now age-old-RP-joke food groups.  Patrons can throw their Italian sausage or aged red snapper into the targets if they wish, or they can simply use the ancient gray balls we provide.

– Preston Knowles – Hairbrushes are the weapon of choice here.  Be careful, if you walk away with a hairbrush, Preston will jump off the lever and come searching for you with violent-intent.  But no worries, he’ll probably get an ankle injury hopping off.  (#toosoon? #toomean?  Good luck in recovery, though, really)

– Bryan the Intern – This is your standard dunk tank, except that BTI will be telling you exactly why you’re going to miss with lifetime statistics on your awful pitching abilities and that he would suggest kicking the ball at his target if soccer wasn’t such an awful sport that America sucks at.  And he’ll be right (at least about your missing, not about soccer).

You guys got any other ideas?  Post them in the comments.

    The dunking booth was a great idea. It has nothing to do with exploiting the death of a child and everything to do with people’s hate for Casey Anthony. She killed her child and got away with it. Not much worse than that. Screw political correctness! This was perfectly fine for the Bluegrass Fair to include.

    Exploiting the death of a child? I took it as a shot of someone who got away killing a child. BTW…I like KSR because it is not overly concerned about being PC. Rick Pitino is probably doing all he can to make sure there are no starving children; he kills them before birth.

    I started to write a response but I just don’t see any point. It must be super difficult to see the rest of the world from that high horse. Why does this guy still get to post here?

    This is controversial? Where was the outrage last year when you could throw coal at a Pitino fetus for 15 seconds?

    The dunk tank wasnt about profiting over the death of a child. It was about a way for people to vent their frustrations about the case. Its like the people being able to serve justice themselves. I personally saw nothing wrong with the tank and for those that do, you really need to relax. The world doesnt have to be politically correct all the time. Who the hell is Chris Thomas anyway?

    Chris Thomas, get off your soap box. Thousands of people didn’t see a problem with it as they paid to play the game. It’s free country and people are free to express their opinion (including you) regarding Casey Anthony. Casey is innocent but if you think she is guilty, you have the right to pay to dunk her at the fair. Don’t bring Caylee in this garbage of a post. I roll my eyes at you.

    I seriously doubt that it can be topped. The story was picked up nationally and the bluegrass fair was forced to shut it down, to be adhere to the political corectness doctrine enforced in our society. Is there a “hot button” issue tied to UK sports that would garner such attention? We know there is inside the realm of UK fandom, but nationaly? If you can tie a game to Rick and a dining table, you might get national attention, but it would be shut down because of the X rating factor. Where would you have such a display, for everyone to enjoy?

    Afternoon Underdogs dunk booth or better yet a Jefferson County dunking booth.

    The Rick Pitino Spunk Booth.
    You can throw cups of yogurt at Rick Pitino’s legs or Karen Syphyer’s face.
    Obvious 15 second time limit.

    I personally think a Tim Tebow dunking booth would be great. He would have to re-apply biblical eye liner after every dunk though.

    How about a dunking booth with Billy Clyde sitting atop a bathroom stall. When Jorts hits the target with a basketball BCG falls into a large toilet!

    I agree with 13. I would have done something different though. I’d have a Casey Anthony dummy and whenever you hit the target it hits her over the head, puts duct tape on her mouth and shoves her in a garbage bag. Then a mock countdown would begin of the 31 days until the dummy was reported missing.

    WOW exploiting the child dont see that one. that lady is an outright
    killer. and the story about the drought..hate it for those people and im
    sure we will come to the aid for them but if i have to hear about
    climate change being the cause again or see written about on more
    time i think i will puke. Global warming is BS and has been proven

    The drought is a good way to kill muslim terrorists and the young ones b4 they learn to blow up buildings and take to pirating in the open seas. If Global Warming is real it is a friend of America! Casey Anthony is a baby killing slut.

    #13 I agree, this chris thomas has no idea what the hell he is talking about. Trust me my x wife MURDERED my tow children that i had by her. The KSP charged her with murder, although she was drunk driving and killed my two children. This dude probably don’t even have children. Besides wasen’t if for charity?
