Eat your heart out, Greg Louganis.
A young man in a University of Wisconsin tank top (henceforth known as Wisconsin bro) took extreme measures to cool himself off at the State Fair over the weekend.

As captured in an Instagram video posted on Sunday, with dozens of fellow fairgoers looking on, he changed into his swim trunks and took a quick dip... in the DNR's fish tank.

Here's the video, which was posted by "darbyvoeks":



The accompanying caption suggests the Wisconsin bro is darbyvoeks himself:

Steve Carroll, DNR spokesman, told the Pioneer Press that while the pond contains 45 species native to Minnesota, human beings shouldn't be one of them.

"It's not designed for human swimming. It's for the fish," he said.

And while darbyvoeks seems to think his dive was all fun and emoticons, police spokeswoman Brooke Blakey said there could be consequences.

"It's being investigated," she told the PiPress. "We don't advise that you do that because there will be repercussions."

For instance, according to the PiPress, a man caught diving into the pond last Friday was banned from the fair for the duration of this year, along with his entire group of friends.

But we get the vibe Wisconsin bro isn't sweating it, especially after he cooled himself off in the DNR pond.

Maybe they shouldn't report murders or rape either because morons will copy-cat their behavior...

Calm the hell down everyone. This ain't nothin major. Its fit for the City Pages to cover, not the Pioneer Press. All of you calling for severe punishments are reactionary pigs.

Heh. Did he crush any fish? Did anyone get hurt? No? Shit, no one is going to press any charges...

Headline: Dumb Kid Acts Dumb, Has Fun, Impresses Girl.

How is this any dumber than eating a fried candy bar?

I misread this headline as "drives" into fishtank.  If it's only that he dove into it, then I don't see the problem.

So if some idiot from Wisconsin jumps into a fish pond at the State Fair, we should keep it a secret so that our own idiots don't do the same thing?

Actually I know this kid (and his mother).  He's from Minneapolis and will be a freshman at UW-Madison.

Terribly irresponsible. How many morons will copy-cat this kids' behavior - - forcing the DNR to close down the pool for those of us who enjoy(ed) it?!? I hope that they tag him and charge him with disorderly conduct or endangerment to the fish in the pool.

In a related story, the DNR has announced plans to stock next year's fish pond with Brazilian piranhas. "They're attracted to the scent of cheese and beer," said DNR spokesman Steve Carroll, "And we look forward to Darby's return."
