Corey and Chuck Norris...What do they have in common? They are both amazing!
I know I made some of you cry with my last post, so this one is pretty much guaranteed to give you a laugh... I was looking through pictures yesterday to find some of Corey to put on FB and wanted to share a fun memory of Corey that these pictures brought to mind. Corey and I had the chance to see Chuck Norris, (ahhumm...I mean Mike Huckabee) and hear Chuck speak on behalf of Huckabee at a political rally back in January of 2008. Corey wasn't on FB in 2008 but if he had been, these pictures would have made it on his page. Corey was beyond thrilled at the chance to see Chuck in person (I think he grew up watching Walker, Texas Ranger) and in preparation began amusing himself by looking up various "Chuck Norris Facts". These are hilarious statements that fans have come up with to attest to Chuck's amazingness...The dictionary doesn't think that is a real word...but that's because it is another name for Chuck Norris ;) So, to show his love and loyalty to Chuck, aka Walker (Texas Ranger), Corey decided to create his own Chuck Norris Fact and made a T-shirt with his fact prominently displayed. He really got into it even buying a kit at Staples that would allow him to print out his design on our inkjet printer...I wish I had a better, more head on shot of the front but am thankful just to have this one...I've never been able to find the T-shirt itself :( Not sure what he ended up doing with it...I don't think he took it off and threw it up on stage at Chuck during his speech...I know he wanted to, but I would've remembered that if it had really happened ;)
Corey's design was a picture of a Brake for Moose road sign that you may have seen on the side of a NH or Maine highway...Since Chuck would be visiting our state, Corey decided to incorporate it into his fact. Here it is:
Brake for Chuck - It will save your life. Hundreds of collisions.
and the most important part:
"Chuck Fact 298: Chuck Norris does not look both ways when crossing the street. He just roundhouse kicks any oncoming traffic."
Chuck Norris and his wife...Chuck looks pretty invincible to me...all dressed in black...
which leads me to another Chuck fact I found online (there are hundreds of them! just google it)...
"Chuck Norris invented black. In fact, he invented the entire spectrum of visible light. Except pink. Tom Cruise invented pink."
and we can all use to laugh more...
"Chuck Norris can speak Russian...in Chinese."
"Chuck Norris doesn't call the wrong number. You answer the wrong phone."
"Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants."
And now a couple of Chuck's favorite facts about himself:
"Chuck Norris is suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for
his left and right legs."
"When Chuck Norris does a push-up, he isn't lifting himself up. He's pushing the earth down. "
