(Newser) – "The Lions Club thinks that this has probably gone a bit too far." And so ends the short but glorious run of the Casey Anthony dunking booth at the Lions-sponsored Bluegrass Fair in Kentucky. The booth allowed fair-goers to fire a ball at either the "guilty" or "innocent" lever while an Anthony impersonator heckled, reports the Lexington Herald-Leader. Lions officials cited "growing public sentiment" in pulling the plug. The booth didn't even last one day.
