Chuck Norris Is A Badass – Sort Of

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The world may know Chuck Norris as an ass-kicking 80s action hero, but in reality, Walker, Texas Ranger is a calm, normal guy.

At least that’s according to Ian Spector, who runs a website filled with weird Chuck Norris trivia called, and has just penned a book based on those farcical facts titled, The Truth About Chuck Norris: 400 Facts About The World’s Greatest Human (Gotham Books).

The site and book boast ridiculous Norris factoids like Guns don’t kill people, Chuck Norris does, and A cobra once bit Chuck Norris’ leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.

However, Spector is a survivor of a real-life encounter with Chuck Norris, and admits he isn’t as scary as the site implies.

Last year, after his website took off, Spector got to meet Chuck at a casino in Connecticut, where Norris was hosting a fighting championship.

Spector explains, “My dad and I met Chuck Norris and his wife and it was actually a pretty calm encounter; no roundhouse kicks to the face or anything. He asked about the site and wondered why people thought he was such a powerhouse. He didn’t quite get it, but I think he decided to just run with it.”

The Truth About Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks its way onto shelves today (Nov. 29).
