A horde of guys named Josh gathered in a random Nebraska field in US on Saturday to "fight for the right to retain this common name," according to organiser Josh Swain, making a viral year-old Josh meme come to life.
One year ago, a Josh Swain gathered every other Josh Swain he could find on Facebook and challenged them to a fight, reports Fox News.
The original Josh Swain wrote to the other guys named Josh, "4/24/2021, 12:00 PM, 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."
Josh Swain decided to go ahead with his Josh battle after the meme went viral on social media. The only problem was that the coordinates he chose at random "landed on some farm owner's land who refused to host such a ridiculous affair."
He picked new coordinates, 40.858689, -96.784136, which is at Air Park Green Area in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the fight was on.
The actual fight was a "Pool Noodle Battle Royale," with all the guys named Josh armed with pool noodles battling in the first fight, followed by a fight for everyone else in attendance.
Two Josh Swains showed up, so they had a rock, paper, scissors showdown before the rest of the festivities began.
The victor was a four-year-old little Josh, who was crowned with a Burger King crown, according to KLKN reporter Yousef Nasser.
As the Josh fight meme came to life, the group also took the opportunity to fundraise for the Children's Hospital & Medical Center Foundation, which provides medical care to children in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The fundraiser, cheekily named "Legal Fees to Help Josh Swains Change Their Names," had raised $8,781 by Saturday night.
The groups of Joshs also brought in a ton of non-perishable food for the Lincoln Food Bank.
