What's with the Chuck Norris obsession?

Asked by Allie (17541points) June 10th, 2008

My friend Sasha and I were in Spencer’s looking through posters yesterday and there was one with a bunch of Chuck Norris quips on it. I’ve seen posts on here about him and I have some guy friends who have a pretty good time with C.N. references. I don’t get it…

I never understood it myself, but I don’t think it has anything to do with Chuck Norris anymore, if it ever did in the first place.

Chuck Norris Facts

I think I read somewhere that Norris himself is slightly bemused by the whole thing. Over the years, it’s really taken on a life of its own.

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

Chuck Norris once ate three 72 oz. steaks in one hour. He spent the first 45 minutes having sex with his waitress.

Helen Keller’s favorite color is Chuck Norris.

If Superman and The Flash were to race to the edge of space you know who would win? Chuck Norris.

Ahhh… thanks for the laughs!

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s funny too. I just never understood it.
waterskier2007: Nice.
P.S. – Here’s the poster we saw. It had some pretty funny ones on it.

my favorite one is “Chuck Norris once visited the ‘Virgin Islands’. Now they are just called ‘The Islands’”

This reminds me of the fluther user Hairypalm. What happened to him? To many chuck Norris jokes, so he got banned?

People using the “so bad it’s good mentality”. Which doesn’t change the fact in reality that its still bad. Seems those gullible to cheap comedic tricks fall victim to this form of novelty, while quite a few make a ton of profit from the phenomenon.

There is also a lot of pub quiz teams out there called ‘Chuck Norris’ – because he’s always right.

Hey Buster, you’re talking about my dad!

My dad doesn’t kick your ass, and then write a song about it! My dad makes you stab yourself in the throat with the pen in which you just composed your own eulogy!

Chuck Norris wants you to sign a petition telling Congress to allow more domestic oil drilling. Seriously.

So you better!

Chuck Norris is amazing!

Chuck Norris counted to infinity. Twice.

Chuck Norris knows the last digit of pi.

When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.

These are my favorites!

dude, there are too many chuck norris jokes/facts. what is he, superman? this is so extreme (or else i just think it is because it’s 4 in the morning), but hasn’t chuck invaded enough culture to leave poor, deceased, mr. rogers alone?
