A student named Josh Swain from Arizona messaged many people named Josh on a social media group last year out of boredom and challenged them to a fight in a park, if they wanted to keep the name and discover the true ownership of the name 'Josh'.
Last year when the 22-year-old named Josh Swain came up with the idea for the funny fight of all the Joshes or the ownership name when boredom set in during the COVID pandemic, it all seemed funny and just a joke.
But this year we witnessed this Josh fight in US park for a pool noodle battle and it was hilarious. Hundreds of people turned up to a US park for a heated pool noodle brawl to decide who is the rightful owner of the name Josh.
This student from Arizona messaged other people named Josh on social media last year and challenged them to a duel, if they wanted to know the true owner.
Josh Swain wrote in the original message last year: 'You're probably wondering why I've gathered you all here today.'
Another man named Josh Swain replied 'because we all share the same names' but then he described what he wants. “Precisely, 4/24/2021, 12:00 p.m., meet at these coordinates, (40.8223286, -96.7982002) we fight, whoever wins gets to keep the name, everyone else has to change their name, you have a year to prepare, good luck.”
The idea became a reality when people turned up in droves at Air Park in Nebraska.
The pool noodle competition was open to anyone with the forename Josh and featured different fighters in Jedi robes and Spider-Man spandex, among other suitably gladiatorial outfits.
After all the hilarious fights with pool noodles, the winner of that competition came out to be a four-year-old, who was crowned with a Burger King crown.
Mr Swain, the organiser of the silly but successful event said he was surprised about how his idea blew up, adding: "I did not expect people to be as adamant about this as they are right now."
