My first Chuck Norris film was The Octagon (1980) at a drive-in in New York. The Octagon referred to a group of ninjas he was battling, and it contained the memorable dialog line: “The body sleeps, the mind never sleeps.” That’s good Kung-Fu stuff. Since then, I have watched in dismay as this caucasian Karate colossus devolved into a shotgun-wielding, pseudo-sheriff/hick brawler. (Okay, I didn’t watch it, but I saw the promos.) More recently, someone on the Internet posted faux facts about Chuck Norris. And they are pretty funny. Fully aware that people are spreading truths about him, Mr. Norris has thus far allowed the authors to live.
