This is inspired by entropy_house's reference to a Chuck Norrishawk in her post.

There is a strange internet phenomenom surrounding the actor, Chuck Norris that has become widespread in popular culture. Why? I don't have a clue. But even a non-Chuck fan like me can get a Chuck-le out of these...

1. If you have five dollars and Chuck Norris has five dollars, Chuck Norris has more money than you.

Snipped from Wikipedia (which means, take with large grain of salt) Chuck Norris Facts originally started appearing on the Internet in early 2005. Conan O'Brien's Chuck Norris jokes on Late Night with Conan O'Brien have been seen as an inspiration for the fad. Chuck Norris Facts followed facts based on actors Vin Diesel, Mr. T, and Bob Saget. Chuck Norris Facts surged into the gaming community shortly after a Chuck Norris Fact generator was introduced as a World of Warcraft add-on in early 2006[1].

And this is scarily true-- I've seen the ad on the internet:

Governor Mike Huckabee, as a 2008 Republican Presidential Candidate, made a campaign video with Chuck Norris called HuckChuckFacts[9]. In it, he tells Chuck Norris facts, while Norris responds with endorsements of Huckabee. Rival Republican candidate Mitt Romney responded with a Chuck Norris Fact-themed advertisement of his own.[10]

Great list - even if I don't know the actor ... I googled and haven't seen any of his films!

I especially loved #17 ... I shall have to introduce him to DJ!

The funniest thing on this Chuck Norris Facts website is at the very bottom of the home page.
The above content on this website is not necessarily true and should not be regarded as truth.

Shucks. I really believed that Chuck Norris invented water.
