They should charge $50 and have a ladder and towels. People will quit doing it.

He should claim it was a protest swim, then Bass Pro Shop may owe him some money.

What a bogus charge - "criminal damage to property" - how does one damage anything swimming in a pool?

It's one of those tik tok internet challenges. Called "the bass pro challenge". Pretty sure Bass Pro is upset because it's dangerous I think someone dove and cracked his head open.

I think they should put a bunch of jellyfish, stingrays and maybe a couple sharks or Gators in the tank. Maybe they would call it the Steve Irwin challenge then.

Well I guess "Louisiana man" is the closest equivalent of "Florida man", so why not?

Free advertising for Bass pro shops and Carhatts, they owe the swimmer royalties...
