Want to take out your frustrations regarding the jury verdict in the Casey Anthony murder trial in the death of 2 year old Caylee Anthony? Want to provide your own justice … head to the Bluegrass Fair in Lexington, KY and partake in the Casey Anthony dunking booth.
The Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair organizers have put the Casey Anthony Dunking Booth front and center at the fair. It is one of the first games you seen when you walk in through the main gates, and it’s already getting a lot of attention. A lot of people were out Monday night snapping photos, calling friends, and talking about the booth.
“We’re hoping that it’s taken in a fun way so that people coming out can release some of their frustrations about what just happened in the last few months and they can show their opinion,” says fair organizer Michael Kaplan.
The Lex18 is stating that the booth is causing a controversy. CONTROVERSY, WHAT CONTROVERSY? What might be a nice idea on the part of fair organizers is to maybe donate some of the proceeds from the Casey Anthony dunk tank to a charity that protects or helps find missing persons. That does not mean sending it the Cindy and George’s non-profit.
Those who participate can pick up a ball and throw it at one of two choices – “guilty” or “innocent.” The goal is to hit one of them, knocking the Anthony look-alike into the freezing cold water below.
The booth is called “State Vs. Anthony.” Fair organizers say they came up with the concept to give people a way to vent their frustration over Anthony’s not guilty verdict.
A statement on the Bluegrass Fair website states, “with her dunk… she washed her conscience… a little at a time.”
However, not everyone at the fair thinks this the best idea, and some even say it’s in poor taste.
