    In related news, Chuck is also sueing NBC, claiming Law and Order are names for his right and left legs.

    Amazing. Seems he's running low on cash, so it's time for pointless law suits and ridiculous endorsement deals. [​IMG]

    I actually don't blame him. If my name was used like that, I'd be pissed.

    It IS true that some facts are sexists or racist, so it's normal to see him sue them... If he didn't, he could be the target of potential feminist in need of money to build some new flyer about how unequal our salarys are...

    Eh? He has a very good base to stand on. This case is very valid, and I sure as hell wouldn't like it if someone used my name to get profits somewhere, and didn't ask my permission to use it first, especially likenesses of me. That would DEFINITELY piss me off, and I'm sure it would anger you as well.

    Hopefully he gets his money from these guys. If they'd asked, I'm sure he would have obliged.

    He didn't have to file a lawsuit. He just spoke it into existence.

    I am aware of the lewd ones, I don't remember reading any racist ones two years ago, those must be new. And should be taken out. So tone down the lewd ones, and still print the book. Norris was on a tv show about a year or two ago and recounted his favorite ones. Fact.

    Youtube or it never happened!!!

    I remember one show, where they gave him a list of "top 10 Chuck Norris "facts"", and he had to comment on them. He didn't seem to like any of them, though.

    Yes, I remember that and that's why this surprises me. He seemed so keen about the jokes and all... But I guess it isn't the same if a guy comes, puts all those "facts" together and sells them. [​IMG]

    the thing is, chuck norris is a joke anymore. No one cares about him. What has he done in the past 5 years to make him even relevant? Nothing. The guy should take advantage of this internet cult status of sorts and get himself back into some level of popularity. Look at Bob Saget, guy had the lamest gig ever on americas funniest home videos and full house. He was probably doing alright and making some money, but for most of mainstream america, he was lame. He did a couple of comedies and he said some swears and all of a sudden, he's a funny guy and younger people actually think he is something other than the tall guy taking care of kids and being a too nice kind of guy.

    Seriously though, I'm so surprised he hasn't taken advantage of the situation, the douche will not make money off of dew commercials or whatever that was and texas walker ranger.

    My hungover 2 cents
