If you’ve been around the internet at all, it’s easy to assume that you may have run into a few Chuck Norris jokes:
- Question: If paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, and scissors beats paper, what beats all 3 at the same time?
- Answer: Chuck Norris.
- Chuck Norris has never blinked in his entire life. Never.
- Chuck Norris doesn’t Do push ups off the Earth…Chuck Norris Pushes down the Earth.
There are websites devoted to these jokes, and each time I see a new Chuck Norris joke I smile a little smile, you see my Dad is tougher than Chuck Norris…and I have proof.
Here’s a little back story:
When my dad was in his 20′s he began taking Karate. I have fond memories of my dad coming home from his class and trying to gently demonstrate (in slow motion) to my mom how he learned to flip or kick. My brother and I enjoyed the spectacle of Mom slowly falling to the ground.
He got very close to getting his black belt, but life got in the way. He had to work more hours, he didn’t have the time to go to Karate class any more etc… Thus marked the end of our “slo mo” Karate demonstrations with Mom and Dad.
Now back to Chuck Norris:
It was during my dad’s karate phase that he attended a tournament in San Francisco. During his match he over shot and kicked his opponent outside the legal area, the judge disqualified for being “too tough” taking him out of the rest of the tournament. Who was this judge? Yes, you guessed it a young Karate professional named Chuck Norris.
Years later I am now the mother of two boys and I love to tell them that their grandfather is the toughest man in the world, because he was even “too tough” for Chuck Norris, and they are very proud of their “Papa.”
So here is my own lame attempt at modifying a Chuck Norris joke:
When the boogeyman goes to sleep, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris then they both hide under the covers in case my dad comes by. (I told you it was lame)
Happy Belated Father’s Day to the toughest man in the world, I love you very much.
