Readers are doubtless aware of the Chuck Norris Facts lists that have been circulating on the Internet for about a year now. If not, check out those four links, or see the video below, where Chuck reads ten of his favorites.
Nice to see he can poke fun at himself and smile.
Anyway, it seems a business in Croatia is using Mr. Norris' Internet reputation as a crime-fighting tool.
A bakery which used a photo of Chuck Norris to scare off burglars has been congratulated on their plan by the legendarily tough action star.
The bakers in Split, Croatia, had been broken into almost every week until they put up the poster of the martial arts legend with a sign saying: 'This shop is under the protection of Chuck Norris.'
In more than a month since the picture was first displayed, the bakery hasn't had a single burglary.
Now, Norris has left the bakery a message on his official website saying he is proud to be able to help - even if not in person.
'I am glad to see I have been of assistance over in Croatia where they are using a picture of me to scare thieves,' Norris said on his website.
'Maybe I'll pay them a visit one day to make sure the message gets across - thieves are never welcome,' he said.
There's more at the link.
Hmm. If there's a cause-and-effect relationship at work here, Mr. Norris should start charging for his services. Who knows? He may become the USA's most lucrative defense export since the F16 fighter!
