a bridge not far enough
Voters in the nation of Slovakia have voted overwhelmingly to name a new cycling and pedestrian bridge across the Morava River into Austria Chuck Norris.
The article accompanying the strange headline explains "The actor's work has become a popular source of kitschy fun among Slovaks and a mainstay for local jokes about macho strength and invincibility."
The tie-in with US News and politics is, of course. Chuck Norris. Reported in a UK paper.
He also could be the answer to a lot of our problems, and I can't for the life of me figure out why the Republicans don't nominate him to be president. I'll bet the Iranians and North Koreans would be quaking in their boots if Chuck Norris was in the ovular office.
