Chuck Norris and The Internet Joke Phenomenon
Chuck Norris jokes are a widespread, Internet originated, sensation that take the form of hugely exaggerated claims and facts about Chuck Norris's strength, ferociousness, sexual potency and masculinity that have no basis in truth for Chuck Norris or any human. The more outrageous the claim, the funnier and more memorable the joke becomes.
The rising popularity of the jokes and their association with the star have somewhat affected Chucks very reputation, whether negatively or not is up for debate. Ultimately they have become ubiquitous with the star and could even become as popular and long lasting as knock knock jokes.
