Has the time and heyday of "the Legend of Chuck Norris" come to pass? Or is there a revival in the works? Since I am a de facto dude, and since Chuck Norris is a first-ballot dude HOF'er, I'm going to explore the future of Chuck Norris statements of superhumanity. I will go overboard and beat this dead horse, since for all we know, Chuck Norris should be able to revive it.

Having felt that I've committed silent blasphemy, I am finally getting to the topic of Chuck Norris in month nine of my gestation as a writer. How this happened can be attributed to my eternal tug-o-war that is "Fear of Chuck Norris" vs. "Infinite Respect for Chuck Norris." Should I have discussed him sooner and avoided the fear of receiving a phantom roundhouse kick to the jaw? Or should I have waited for a sign? Luckily for me, my sign came during a Walker: Texas Ranger marathon on the Hallmark channel, and during that very manly marathon, it seemed as if gods of justifiable ass-kicking were smiling upon me. With that, I make this holy offering to Chuck Norris.

Those observations alone speak for his eligibility. You don't need a gathering of Titans in a volcano lair to figure out that this deems him worthy of being a true and ultimately infallible god.
