You gotta love Chuck Norris. Yes, he's been in more than a few cheesy and downright schlocky movies and/or series, but he's done whatever he's wanted to do, and stayed in good shape his whole life doing it. He's a self-made man, and is definitely an American Icon. (I classify the term "American Icon" by any real-life person that's had an action figure made in their image). :-)
Chuck can even laugh at himself. A whole website is devoted to supposed "Chuck Norris facts," that are somewhat humorous. Whenever I want a laugh, I click on this site.
Here are a few of the site's offerings:
The chief export of Chuck Norris is Pain.
When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.

What have you done for me lately?
Better yet, what have you done for America lately???
I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly.
I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters,
eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked
graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the
Marquis de Sade blush.
A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting
broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my
body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly.
What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa?
1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells;
2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and
3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.
