Chuck Norris Will Kick The Penguin’s Ass

The Chuckster is in court. Yep. Tough-guy actor and martial arts expert Chuck Norris sued publisher Penguin on Friday over a book he claims unfairly exploits his famous name, based on a satirical Internet list of “mythical facts” about him. At issue seems to be a published list of satirical “facts” about Chuck that have been widely circulated for a long time. Gems such as:

  • Chuck Norris’s tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
  • Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
  • Chuck Norris can charge a cell phone by rubbing it against his beard.

Carlos Ray’s (Chuck’s real name) lawsuit states that the publishers (Penguin) have misappropriated and exploited Mr. Norris’s name and likeness without authorization for their own commercial profit. I predict a bad TV mini-series, complete with a height challenged female sidekick that has some type of physical disability.
