Chuck Norris goes beyond meme after getting his own Slovakian bridge

by | 28th, February 2012

THERE are many celebrities brought back to life through memes. Chuck Norris is a fine example of that. There’s a whole host of memes based on how hard he is. Things like ‘Chuck Norris does have an umbrella because he can kick rain in the genitals’ and ‘Chuck Norris doesn’t need medicine because he bullied all the illness out of his body’.

Okay, they were made up and terrible, but you know which memes we mean. And so, bending this meme fascination out of all proportion and back into the real world, Chuck Norris is reportedly getting a bridge in Slovakia named after him.

Apparently, a bridge that spans the country’s Morava river and will cross the border to neighbouring Austria has had it’s name deferred to the general public by way of an online vote.

Two names that are, shall we say, more traditional, have been put forward but Chuck Norris has the overwhelming share of the votes with 74%. That’s right. There’s going to be a Chuck Norris Bridge.

Ultimately, the final decision will be made by a regional assembly, but Governor Pavol Freso has said it would follow the wishes of the public, stating:

The same way as we have so far been building it in full sight of the public, we will seek that the name is accepted by the public as well.”

You’d think that Chuck Norris is too macho to need a bridge. He’d just jump over the gap. Chuck Norris kicks gaps in the balls. Sorry. We’re rubbish at making up viral jokes.
