Should Slovaks Name Their Bridge After Chuck Norris? (Because They Want To)

Chuck Norris can already hold the weight of a hundred sturdy men on his back without breaking a sweat, but soon he might be able to do it in two places at once. The Slovakian town of Bratislava is voting on the name of a new cycle bridge, which will run over the Morava river to connect the town with Schlosshof, Austria across the way. And "Chuck Norris" is winning by a landslide.

According to The New York Post, the heroic name had more than a thousand votes within a day of opening the poll, beating the runner-up -- Mother Theresa -- by nearly 900. But the vote will keep going until April, so there's plenty of time for the Saint to catch up. You know what they say... Slow and steady wins the race. They also say Chuck Norris can win any battle with a roundhouse kick to the face, so... Heads up, Mother Theresa.

    The Chuck Norris bridge will help defend them against Communists, terrorists, thugs, mafia and natural disasters

    Germany has Hasselhoff, Slovakia has Norris. No contest here!

    LOL.. well.. okay but I feel bad now that I know he is beating down Mother Teresa. Having said that - yes. Good for the Slovaks!
    I'm considering naming one of the gates to my backyard 'Chuck Norris International Gate' or something like this.
    Chuck Norris FTW!

    Note that the overall weight of the bridge is the exact same mass as Chuck Norris's eggs.

    So agree!!!! But, seriously... if they want to name their bridge that, go right ahead. I am getting tired of all the hype about the man, though. Gets old. -_-

    Although I think it's starting to die down. I remember back in like 2010 and 09 how rampant it was lol, and I'd always tell whoever said it 'Um you realize that joke is old now right?"

    Its weird how people will just sometimes try desperately to hold onto old, tired jokes. Have you heard of the Honey Badger meme from like 2010?
  • LoveBug A Pigeon. 2012/02/28 05:15:15
    LoveBug
    Yes. I hope it does die down...completely. Then maybe they could do like Disney, open up the vault, and tell them again many years later... Then they would either be a hit, or puzzle people!!

    I mean, I know many people love Chuck Norris, but are the jokes really that necissary?? -__-

    We're about 5-10 years behind the American entertainment curve here in Slovakia. Memes in particular last a very long time.
