The river that runs under the Chuck Norris Bridge is made from the tears of the men he's humiliated

Presented with little comment, a plan to name a major new bridge near the capital of Slovakia after 80s action star and tired meme Chuck Norris.

From Reuters:

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 final decision will be up to a regional assembly. But regional governor Pavol Freso has said it would follow the wishes of the people in the internet ballot where Norris leads as the top choice for the bridge’s name.

Norris is semi-famous for many things, including, but not limited to, the worst jetpack sequence in modern American television history.
