The group Save My Park — which advocates reopening Kentucky Kingdom — is an early front-runner for the weirdest news release of the week award. 

It’s a fake fish wrapped in newspaper.

The news release plays off Gov. Steve Beshear’s comment that it’s about time for the state to “fish or cut bait” on the shuttered amusement park — to make a deal with a new amusement park operator, or find something else to do with the property Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center.

The pun-heavy news release, addressed to the governor, speaks for itself. 

State officials and an investment group led by Ed Hart, a Louisville businessman and former Kentucky Kingdom operator, are expected to meet this week to discuss the latest proposal from Hart’s team.
