Hundreds of people named Josh battle in mock-duel over name

They’re just Joshing.

Hundreds of guys named Josh flocked to a park in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday for a mock-duel with pool noodles over the “right” to the name.

People named Josh from around the country simultaneously duked it out during the goofball battle — laughing and whacking each other with the colorful foam floaties.

The doppelganger duel — dubbed “Josh Fight” and “Josh vs. Josh vs. Josh” — was the brainchild of 22-year-old Josh Swain, of Tucson, Arizona, who messaged other folks with this first and last name while bored during the coronavirus lockdown last year.

His tongue-in-cheek message challenged the other Josh Swains to meet on April 24, 2021 at a random set of coordinates, for a duel.

“We fight, whoever wins gets to keep the name,” he quipped. “Everyone else has to change their name, you have a year to prepare, good luck.”

The event later became the subject of a Reddit thread, drawing Joshes of all types to the field at Air Park, according to NPR.

The festivities started with a “righteous battle of Rock, Paper, Scissors” between Josh Swain and another Josh Swain from Omaha.

The Arizona student won, allowing him to claim the title of the best Josh Swain.

The pool noodle battle was then open to anyone with the first name of Josh.

Ultimately, a 5-year-old, nicknamed “Little Josh,” was crowned the winner of the fight, according to a tweet.

“BREAKING: Five-year-old #LittleJosh has won the #JoshFight!” ABC’s Channel 8 reporter Yousef Nasser tweeted.

2-year-old boy shoots parents in Maine home

A 2-year-old boy in Maine shot his parents Wednesday morning with a gun he picked up from a nightstand, a report said.

The toddler’s 25-year-old father was hit in the head, and the mother, 22, was struck in the leg in the shooting at their home in West Bath, WMTW reported, citing Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry.

The baby was injured by the recoil of the gun, authorities said. All three family members were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to Merry.

“The question of how the boy was able to pick up and fire the weapon is of great concern and is being investigated,” Merry said, according to the report.

“This situation, while disturbing, could have had an even more tragic ending,” the sheriff said.

Banksy's 'Love is in the Air' auctioned for $12.9M in crypto

A Banksy piece fetched $12.9 million in an auction Tuesday — and the winning bidder will pay for the pricey pop art with cryptocurrency.

The anonymous artist’s “Love is in the Air” is the first physical piece of art sold by a major auction house paid for using crypto, according to a tweet from Sotheby’s.

The protest image — which shows a protester winding up with a bouquet of flowers in hand instead of a molotov cocktail — was sold after a 14-minute bidding battle with four participants, Sotheby’s said.

The auction house announced in March it would auction off a series of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which are digital assets that represent ownership of virtual items like art and sports memorabilia.

The company said it “initiated the restart of the pipeline” — which delivers about 45 percent of the fuel consumed on the East Coast — at around 5 p.m..

“Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal,” Colonial’s statement said.
