    I Just Turned Off ESPN

    I'm watching NFL Primetime like a good American man should, and they start making Chuck Norris jokes. On national television. On a sports channel. Chuck Norris jokes. On the Worldwide Leader. Chuck. Sports. Jokes. Norris.

    I was horrified, terrified, mystified. I changed over to some faux Republican faux news (aka The Colbert Report). That's right, I changed the channel away from ESPN and it wasn't a) Sunday, b) a new South Park, or c) Futurama.

    Next thing you know they'll be crackin wise about Steve Irwin.

    In related news, here's a column written by Chuck in which he claims that evolution isn't real and Jesus's tears heal cancer. o_O

    Its probably just as well that you changed the channel. When Chuck heard them joking about him, he decided to pay them a visit. It wasn't pretty.

    I'm not entirely sure that's a thing of past. Many a joke and an anecdote with the starting line of "He's so tough a guy that..." has simply, irrevocably, been branded a Chuck Norris -punchliner. I doubt we will ever be rid of them. That is, of course, barring that Chuck doesn't decide to rough them up themself. I'd say that's our only hope.

    Grah. I hate the position I'm in sometimes... I have no problems with people who are religious, but I despise preaching. What a wonderfully annoying thing to wake up and read in the morning.

    Chuck norris missed a punch only once. Since then the sky is blue.
    God wanted to create the world in 10 days. Chuck gave him 6.

    Nothing like a good laugh at other peoples' belief systems. :undecided:

    If I were you I'd be careful, and here's why.

    They once named a street in CA after Chuck Norris, but they had to rename it because people kept dying.




    No one crosses Chuck Norris and lives.

    Please don't lump us all together. Some of us still think that Walker: Texas Ranger was the sorriest excuse for a television show since the Laverne and Shirley spinoff.

    You didnt like it? Why? Was it not politically correct enough? Lets see, there was a black guy, a woman and a gay person. Or is Chuck not gay?

    I quit watching ESPN when they started showing the World Series of Poker exclusively. This simply demonstrates that the channel is stuck in a nosedive.

    We had a one week obsession with the jokes a few months back, and this is the first I've heard of them since. Does this constitute a Canadian obsession with Chuck? I guess that the definition of "obsession" has loosened at some point. =/

    I actually have a friend that works for ESPN, doing something for their web pages last I knew. Maybe I'll track him down and ask him if he knows that there is no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold, so he turned the sun up.

    I beg to differ. Poker is one of the largest growing "sports" there is right now.

    Heck, anyone can go pro!

    I was unhappy when ESPN stopped doing that Sunday night football recap. That hour long program that Chris Berman hosted.

    Better Chuck than that puss Vin Diesel. Chuck's kicked the Viet Cong's arse. All Vin's ever done is get bit by a duck

    For once, I thought I would get to post an amusing article before durf, just once! I had it, all lined up to post after class, but nooooo, you have to get it first. Where do you get these? How do you get them so fast? WHY!
