A bunch of Joshes in the US just fought each other with pool noodles to be crowned The Supreme Josh, and a five year old won.
Yes I know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t the plot for a new Seth Rogan movie. On Saturday midday (US time) Joshes from around the USA met up in Lincoln, Nebraska for a battle that was a year in the making. While this is super cool, a stunt like this is not COVID-safe (especially in the US) and social distancing still needs to be practised.
so did anyone else know that there was a massive pool noodle battle planned between all the people named Josh today that was ultimately won by a 5-year old named Josh who was crowned The Supreme Josh or was I just supposed to find this out on my own pic.twitter.com/ZR6XEXGsrV

What started out as a viral Twitter meme last year, has now become a reality and it all started out with someone called Josh Swain.
On April 24th last year, Josh Swain created a group chat with all the Josh Swains he could find on Facebook. Swain messaged them with one request: fight, and whoever wins gets to keep the name.

What started out as a joke quickly turned quite serious, and the internet WANTED to see this battle play out. However, instead of being a battle between just Josh Swains, it became a battle of all guys named Josh, large or small.
The OG Josh Swain posted the Lincoln coordinates in a subreddit aptly titled r/joshswainbattle. In the message was instructions for all first named Joshes to bring a pool noodle for battle.
At the event there were two battles: one for those named Josh Swain, and one for those named Josh.
The Josh Swains had to compete in a game of rock, paper, scissors — and the loser would have to change their name. Only one other Josh Swain from Nebraska showed up, and disappointingly for him, he lost against OG Josh.
Then came the ultimate Josh battle. The pool noodle battle…
…And the winner was an adorable little five year old called Josh (of course).
Awww what a truly heart-warming story.
Who said Joshes are always fuckboys?? Me, I said it, but I take it all back now. Except for that one Josh who I despise (you know who you are).
