I would say that this is a slow news day. But, having grown up in Lincoln, NE... that's about par for the course in terms of excitement.

If there can be only one Josh, then the choice is clear.

My brother's mother in law died recently and her husband is considering getting a companion dog that is 10 years old and owner recently died, named "Josh". My 7 year old niece really likes the dog, they wanted to see how he does with everyone before my brother's father in law takes him. I really hope he takes the dog.

The weird thing is: I am currently living in Lincoln, Nebraska (I don't want your pity!) and this is the first I'm hearing of this.  I knew when the first one went down it was big news.  This second Josh Fight apparently slipped under the radar.

They should fight to the death.

Of course, I'm Joshing.

It's a lovely town to grow up/raise kids in. But for the atrocious political hellscape, and my lack of kids, I might still be there.

The annual battle of the Joshes gives me minor hope for humanity.

Also, I'm glad it's annual now, and not a one-time-thing.

Article just triggered me to think about it - name some famous Joshes.  I tried but I only came up with a few - seemed kind of weird so I checked.  There really is a dearth of seriously famous Joshes - they may be fighting for a cursed name here

Would you want to be CEO of a Fortune 500 company and called Josh? I suspect many adopt a nickname or go by their middle name instead.

/Pretty much my Dad's entire family went by middle names. Nothing that unusual about their first names.

Why couldn't a CEO go by Josh or Joshua? is it somehow more unprofessional than Mike or Michael, Jon or Jonathan?

And people randomly going by their middle names, even without "unusual" first names, is how you end up with (David) Madison Cawthorn..........

But that wasn't enough to dethrone 5-year-old Josh Vinson Jr., who defended his title as the No. 1 Josh.

I'm sure they could, but would they? Would you be the one to tell everyone to pull out their cameras, because you're about to grab yourself a pool needle and make some toddlers cry?

FTA: Saturday's event raised nearly $21,000 for Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, and the owners of the Josh Cellars wine label pledged to match that amount with a donation of their own.

Well how nice is that!  Good for the Josh Wars.

Honestly that's what I thought of at first, too.  Relieved to hear he wasn't involved.  Dude doesn't deserve to be named Josh, he deserves to have no name, merely an inmate number.
