Chuck Norris Wore Pink to Beat Up Bigots!
It’s true, a whole new line of pink martial arts gear, and it’s pretty obvious Chuck Norris is coming out of the closet. At the very least, coming clean about a not so honorable period of his life.
Apparently, many years ago, before he became more famous than Rock Hudson, Chuck used to tend bar. He would wear a pink apron and pick fights with anybody who made a remark.
He was young, and he excused such behavior by saying, ‘I just want to rid the world of bigots.’ On the side he would say he was just looking for ways to practice his martial arts.
And, you can believe the above is true because…I read it on the net!
Actually, a fellow wrote into a forum I was on and wanted to read an article on this thing he had heard about Chuck Norris wearing pink and picking fights with drunks, so I thought I would oblige him.
The fact of the matter is that I was learning martial arts, I was a new instructor at the local Kenpo school, when Chuck was making a name for himself on the martial arts tournament scene.
Every week, it seemed, Chuck was winning a tournament, taking down some of the biggest names, taking home the biggest trophies.
Then, a couple of years later, when I was a black belt and out teaching at my own martial arts school, he became a movie star!
Man, we would flock to the movies, watch him beat holy heck out of uunsavory charcters, and we would cheer!
My particular favorite fight scene of his, more even than the battle with Bruce Lee in ‘The Way of the Dragon,’ is in the martial arts/horror flick ‘Silent Rage.’ There is a reality in the barroom fight with the bikers that is so darn nifty it takes the breath away.
Now, over all the years of Chuck Norris, all the movies and the TV show, I have never heard anything scurrilous said concerning him. In fact, people would always remark how he was the most polite fellow they had ever met, how he went out of his way to be kind to people.
Tough guy? Maybe. Certainly a tough karate fighter.
Bad guy? Not to my knowledge.
Wear pink and beat up drunks? Negative.
In spite of all research, in spite of my sleazy talents as a yellow journalist, I could find no mention of Chuck Norris wearing pink and beating up bigots.
All I heard was good things.
And, the Chuck Norris line of pink Martial Arts gear? Made it up.
