Ah yes, Chuck Norris.
Unless you've been under a rock or are a current member of AARP (not an insult - my mom is an AARP member), you probably have heard of the Chuck Norris phenomenon.
Here's a brief explanation from our friends at Wikipedia.org:
"Chuck Norris Facts are satirical facts about martial artist and actor Chuck Norris that have become an Internet phenomenon and as a result have become widespread in popular culture. The facts are normally absurd hyperbolic claims about Norris's toughness, attitude, virility, 'alpha male status,' sophistication and masculinity, for example:
'There is no chin under Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist.'
The facts typically claim that Chuck Norris is some type of irate, all-powerful super-being. The Chuck Norris facts have spread around the world, leading not only to translated versions, but also spawning localized versions mentioning country-specific advertisements and other Internet phenomena. Allusions are also sometimes made to his use of roundhouse kicks to perform seemingly any task, his large amount of body hair with specific regard to his beard, and his role in the action television series Walker, Texas Ranger."
How could you not laugh at that? I guess it all started on Late Night with Conan back in '05 and has been a pop-culture hit every since.
Just for fun, here are some images to exemplify the insanity:
