Multiple ‘Josh Swains’ Converge in Nebraska to Fight Over Name

The unexpected winner was a 4 year old boy.

Published

It all began as an internet joke, as a man named Josh Swain sought out other men named Josh Swain and challenged them to a fight.

The idea was that the winner of the hypothetical contest would be allowed to keep the moniker, while those who didn’t fare so well would be forced to assume a new identity.  This was to be the final decider for all named Josh Swain, but it was only a joke.

…Until it wasn’t.

The fight to be the one true Josh started exactly one year ago, when a Josh Swain gathered every other Josh Swain he could find on Facebook and challenged them to battle.

“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,” the original Josh wrote to the other guys named Josh.

The meme took off on social media so Josh Swain decided to follow through with his Josh fight. The only problem: the coordinates he originally picked at random “landed on some farm owner’s land who did not agree to host such a ridiculous event.”

He picked new coordinates, 40.858689, -96.784136, which is at Air Park Green Area in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the fight was on.

While the event was billed as a violent affair, the story had a heck of a happy ending.

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 coronated with a Burker 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 battle royale for dudes named Josh on Saturday raised more than $8,000 for the Children's Hospital & Medical Center Foundation and brought in non-perishable food for the Lincoln Food Bank.

The fundraiser, cheekily named “Legal Fees to Help Josh Swains Change Their Names,” had raised $8,781 by Saturday night.

The event also benefited the Lincoln Food Bank, as the Joshes were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Published

on

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
