Chuck Norris has sued the people trying to publish the eponymous "Chuck Norris Facts" that circulated the Internet. Examples: "Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he's never cried." Or, "Chuck Norris only takes 20 minutes to watch 60 Minutes." Or, "There is no theory of evolution - just a list of creatures that Chuck Norris has allowed to live."
Now, what does this have to do with the Imus in the Morning program? Well, when the "Chuck Norris Facts" email reached me, one of his movie posters was attached to the document. The poster is supposed to show Norris in all of his butt-kicking glory...and it does, in ways that none of us could imagine.
The poster comes from the movie The President's Man II: A Line In The Sand. But when the studio wanted to distribute the movie to foreign markets, they decided to change the title. They wanted to create a title, and a poster, that would make the movie instantly recognizable as a top-notch action film. They wanted something badass, something frightening, something more macho and manly than you could ever imagine. And they succeeded.
I have no idea what happens in this movie, but it likely involves giving roundhouse kicks to Al Roker and bad grammar.
