Wait, I've got one: Chuck Norris doesn't throw puppies off cliffs, he lifts up the earth and throws it at the puppy.

080304_marine_puppy.jpg FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - Hollywood action star Chuck Norris, known for his martial arts prowess and tough-guy image, has become a cult figure among the U.S. military in Iraq...

A small cardboard shrine is dedicated to Norris at a U.S. military helicopter hub in Baghdad, and comments lauding the manliness and virility of the actor have been left on toilet walls across Iraq and even in neighboring Kuwait, soldiers say.

"The fastest way to a man's heart is with Chuck Norris's fist," reads one message at the shrine, which consists of a signed photo of the actor surrounded by similar statements. "Chuck Norris puts the laughter in manslaughter," reads one and "Chuck Norris divides by zero," reads another....

Soldiers cited many reasons for his appeal. Some appreciated his films and fighting ability -- Norris is a martial arts guru, and many of his films have military themes.

Others said the masculine and plainly dressed actor was an antidote to the preening and moisturized metrosexual male.

Iraqi solders are writing on bathroom walls about being fisted by Chuck Norris? What would Huckabee say?

Chuck dividing by zero strikes me as a borderline metrosexual observation. Wonder what he does to Zeno's dichotomy paradox?

that article is so inane. barely a mention of the possibility that maybe the chuch norris facts are meant to be sarcasm, a jab at US ideas about invincibility... I guess no one credits the US army with the possibility of understanding satire...

i meant cheech norris, of course
