They have become a cult phenomenon. The one liner Chuck Norris facts that circulate around the internet stating just how tough, strong, macho and fearsome Chuck Norris is. Now if it was you or I that was the butt of the jokes we would most likely get offended. But not Chuck Norris. He actually likes them, and even has a favourite Chuck Norris facts.
He claims there is about 60,000 Chuck Norris facts circulation. He doesn’t mind them and sometimes even comments on his own blog about them. One notable factoid that he commented on was “There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live”. He responded to this with “It’s funny. It’s cute. But here’s what I really think about the theory of evolution: it’s not real. It is not the way we got here. In fact, the life you see on this planet is really just a list of creatures God has allowed to live. We are not creations of random chance. We are not accidents. There is a God, a Creator, who made you and me. We were made in His image, which separates us from all other creatures. By the way, without Him, I don’t have any power. But with Him, the Bible tells me, I really can do all things — and so can you.” He has said that the one good thing about them is that they might encourage people to research actual Chuck Norris facts.
The very first Chuck Norris fact he ever heard was “When Chuck Norris does a push up, he doesn’t push himself up, he pushes the world down.” But what is his personal favourite? They wanted to put Chuck Norris on Mt. Rushmore but the granite wasn’t hard enough for his beard.
