Chuck Norris Facts

After creating the website "" and "" both online Chuck Norris Facts generators, the sites became and internet phenomena, and quickly became a viral internet meme. This, however, attracted a lawsuit by Norris, who sued for misappropriated and exploited Norris' name and likeness without authorization for his own commercial profit.

It includes satirical "facts" as "Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer, too bad he has never cried" and "Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits," and "Chuck Norris can charge a cell phone by rubbing it against his beard."
