Chuck Norris Factschuck norris facts

Chuck Norris jokes can be found all over the internet. There’s even a Chuck Norris sub-reddit. Some of the jokes, err, I mean Chuck Norris facts are really funny and others are just plain silly.

When I saw this t-shirt, I laughed. The jokes are considered old now, but they’re still pretty funny to me. When I looked on eBay and various online stores, I saw the same shirt running between $6.00-$35.00. At the thrift store it was $1.99 and probably would ring up less depending on if it was the tag color of the day.

There are still 80’s Chuck Norris t-shirts available online, too.

I found a website that actually prints Chuck Norris jokes on t-shirts.

Here’s a few Chuck Norris facts (There are no Chuck Norris jokes only Chuck Norris FACTS):

  • When Chuck Norris turned 18, his parents moved out.
  • When Chuck Norris gives you the finger, he’s telling you how many seconds you have left to live.
  • Chuck Norris got pulled over by the police because he was speeding. The cop got off with a warning.
  • After drinking all night Chuck Norris doesn’t throw up he throws down.


Of course, I wondered how all these Chuck Norris facts started and wikipedia says this:


Chuck Norris facts originally started appearing on the Internet in early 2005. Conan O’Brien‘s Chuck Norris jokes on Late Night with Conan O’Brien (which generally center on Walker, Texas Ranger) have been seen as an inspiration for the fad. The exaggerated style of these claims is similar to a recurring Saturday Night Live sketch called “Bill Brasky“. Due to the popularity of this phenomenon, similar jokes have been created for various other celebrities, as well as fictional characters.

Norris’ response

Norris responded to the Chuck Norris facts on his official website with a statement. Admitting some of the statements were indeed humorous, he said he tries not to take any of them seriously, and he hopes that such statements will interest people in real facts about him contained in his literary works.

On October 23, 2006, Chuck Norris’ first column for WorldNetDaily consisted of yet another response. It began similarly to the above statement from, but then disclaimed Norris’ own prowess in favor of  God and Jesus Christ.

On November 29, 2007, Gotham Books, the adult division of Penguin USA, released a book entitled The Truth About Chuck Norris: 400 facts about the World’s Greatest Human. Norris subsequently filed suit in December against Penguin USA claiming “trademark infringement, unjust enrichment and privacy rights”. In 2008, Norris dropped the lawsuit.

On October 7, 2009, Tyndale House Publishers issued The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book, which was co-written and officially endorsed by Norris.

Norris has stated that his personal favorite “fact” is that people wanted to add Chuck Norris to Mount Rushmore, but the granite was not tough enough for his beard
