Heard the one about Chuck Norris?
St. Petersburg Times ^ | 02/03/2006 | John Barry

Tuesday night at the Boston Market on East Bay Drive in Clearwater: Guys behind the counter are slinging Chuck Norris jokes.

"You know what kind of furniture Chuck Norris has in his house?" says Matt Kindred, 18.


Matt tells another: "Chuck Norris never blinks his eyes. Never."

Behind him, manager Richard Moody, 22, echoes: "Never!"

Matt executes a pirouette and whips a finger at countermate Evan Heebner, 19. Evan tells the one about how Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. "Too bad Chuck Norris never cries," Evan says.

"Ooooh, good one," everyone says.

Teenagers all across the country, many of whom have never even seen Walker, Texas Ranger, are telling Chuck Norris jokes.

They're really bad. If you want to blame someone, the guilty party is a Brown University freshman. Since last summer, Ian Spector has been spreading jokes like: "Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there."

Ian has collected 40,000 jokes like that. Every day he gets more than a half-million hits on his Web site, The Random Chuck Norris Fact Generator ( His jokes have been picked up by Saturday Night Live.

I searched twice, and the most recent mention of these Chuck Norris jokes was people posting the actual jokes. This is a media response to it, and the fact that a 17 year old kid got this sort of recognition is pretty hilarious.

If you've not read some of the myriad jokes, I'd recommend perusing the page in the article. It's actually quite amusing, esp. for someone my age who group with Chuck Norris action flicks.

I saw a bunch of pretty good ones a few weeks ago and forwarded them to a friend of mine at wrok here who is about 26 yrs old.

His response was basically: I guess you gotta know who Chuck Norris is".

Chuck Norris' first job was as a paperboy.
There were no survivors.

From Chuck's website:


I'm aware of the made up declarations about me that have recently begun to appear on the Internet and in emails as "Chuck Norris facts." I've seen some of them. Some are funny. Some are pretty far out. Being more a student of the Wild West than the wild world of the Internet, I'm not quite sure what to make of it. It's quite surprising. I do know that boys will be boys, and I neither take offense nor take these things too seriously. Who knows, maybe these made up one-liners will prompt young people to seek out the real facts as found in my recent autobiographical book, "Against All Odds?" They may even be interested enough to check out my novels set in the Old West, "The Justice Riders," released this month. I'm very proud of these literary efforts.

Heh. :)

I like the fact that Chuck is pretty laid-back about the whole thing. He's cool.

Plus, he could kill everyone here with his pinky-toe, so best not to get him riled.

Chuck is a decent guy. There's just no humor in those jokes for me.

I guess i'm just uncultured and unrefined as this kind of stuff makes me laugh:

A woman goes into Wal-Mart to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. A Wal-Mart associate is standing there wearing dark shades.

She says, "Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?" He says, "Ma'am, I'm completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes.

She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway. He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB. Test line. It's a good all around combination; and it's on sale this week for only $20.00." She says, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!"

As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor.

"Oh, that sounds like a Master Card," he says.

She bends down to pick it up and accidentally breaks wind. At first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was she who tooted. Being blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.

The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please. "

The woman is totally confused by this and asks, "Didn't you tell me it was on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?"

He replies, "Yes, Ma'am. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call Is $11.00 and the Catfish Bait is $3.50."

The problem is, The "kids" have never watched a Chuck Norris movie or ever watched a Walker:Texas Ranger episode.

By no means are all the "jokes" and "facts" derogatory.
