A battle over the title of Josh drew a crowd from across the nation to a Nebraska park on Saturday for a heated pool-noodle brawl.
It began a 12 months in the past when pandemic boredom set in and Josh Swain, a 22-year-old faculty pupil from Tucson, Arizona, messaged others who shared his title on social media and challenged them to a duel.
Masses confirmed up at Air Park in Lincoln – a location selected at random – to take part within the silliness.
The festivities began with a “grueling and righteous struggle of rock, paper, scissors” between the Josh Swain from Arizona and every other Josh Swain from Omaha. KLKN-TV reported that the Arizona pupil gained that festival, permitting him to say the name of the actual Josh Swain.
The pool-noodle festival that adopted was once open to someone with the primary title of Josh. The victor of that festival was once a five-year-old, Joshua Vinson Jr, who was once coronated with a Burger King crown.
Swain, the organizer, mentioned he was once a bit of stunned about how the entire thing blew up.
“I didn’t be expecting folks to be as adamant about this as they’re at the moment,” he mentioned.
