Right, what’s an ark?

It’s rather hard to look at this and not laugh:

The owners of a replica of Noah’s Ark featured at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Ky., sued its insurers [pdf] who refused to cover rain damage.

The ark’s owner said heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its property and its five insurance carriers refused to cover damages totaling nearly $1 million. The ark itself was reportedly undamaged in the rains.

Ark Encounter is asking for compensatory and punitive damages and a jury trial in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court. The suit names Swiss-based Allied World Assurance Co. Holdings, its use company and three other carriers.

A decision is expected within forty days and forty nights.

Okay, maybe not.
