Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris is the ultimate tough guy. He's a black-belt martial artist who was a six-time undefeated world professional middleweight champion in karate and starred alongside Bruce Lee in Way of the Dragon. He was also TV's Walker, Texas Ranger for eight seasons. While there's no doubt this now 70-year-old star could still karate chop some butt, his particular brand of badass style was upped by a 2005 Internet meme called "Chuck Norris Facts." This Web phenomenon, which featured fictional heroic feats such as "Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves" and "Once, Chuck Norris made a Happy Meal cry," resulted in a slew of hilarious T-shirts and a book.
