    Chuck Norris - Is this funny?

    The radio morning show I listen to to dull the drive to work has been reading quips/lines about chuck norris. They seem to think they are funny, I think I maybe missing something. Here are a few

    Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

    The chief export of Chuck Norris is pain.

    If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death.

    Chuck Norris has counted to infinity. Twice.

    Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting implies
    the probability of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.

    In fine print on the last page of the Guinness Book of World Records it notes that all world records are held by Chuck Norris, and those listed in the book are simply the closest anyone else has ever gotten.


    There is no chin behind Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist.


    Along list can be seen here:

    Can anyone explain this to me. There area tonne of web sites dedicated to this stream of thought
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    According to http://www.chucknorris.com/html/events.aspx

    IN RESPONSE TO THE "RANDOM FACTS" THAT ARE BEING GENERATED ON THE INTERNET

    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.
    And then there are these articles:

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    One out of every 6 or 8 is really funny and witty, but for the most part they are crap.

    They have also done this with Mr. T and Vin Diesel.

    I think most of those are amusing and several of them knee-slapping funny!

    My personal favorite:
    Chuck Norris once ate three 72 oz. steaks in one hour. He spent the first 45 minutes having sex with his waitress.
    I suppose if the joke has to be explained then it's already lost.

    Chuck Norris jokes are just a vehicle to tell 'exaggeration style' jokes (here about machismo) and simply use 'Chuck Norris' as a vehicle. They could just as easily have plugged in Ahnold's name or any other famous tough-guy.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I think Conan O'Brien started it with his late late show.

    yes, funny, but mustn't be over-played.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Chuck Norris and Bill Blasky (of SNL fame) should get together. They can kick some serious butt.

    Chuck Norris is still a hit? I thought Texas rangers was his best, and that died out in the 90's or 80's if I'm correct, now it's just lame re-runs.

    Chuck Norris here can be associated with a gang of kids that lived under a bridge in Santiago sniffing glue... what a gang...
