Chuck Norris Made Honorary Texas Ranger

Chuck Norris Made Honorary Texas Ranger

GARLAND, TX – In a perfect world, this afternoon’s ceremony would include Chuck Norris delivering a signature roundhouse kick to a bad guy attacking Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

Reality, however, is likely to be more sedate when the governor makes the star of Walker, Texas Ranger an honorary Texas Ranger. The ceremony is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the Texas Rangers Company B Headquarters in Garland.

Norris’s brother, Aaron Norris, is also set to be given the honor.

Chuck Norris starred in the TV series about a Texas crimefighter during its run from 1993 through 2001. As the official Sony Pictures website describes the show: “Walker’s independent crime-solving methods have their roots in the rugged traditions of the Old West.”

Not to mention the star’s background as a karate champion.

Much of the show was filmed in the Dallas area.

Aaron Norris, Chuck’s younger brother, was an executive producer for the TV show.

According to state officials, the Norris’ will join a list of several dozen other honorary Rangers, including John Wayne, Will Rogers , former President George H.W. Bush and James B. Francis, former chairman of the Texas Public Safety Commission.

Chuck Norris was a prominent supporter of Gov. Perry during his re-election campaign. Both men kicked up sand during the campaign with separate comments about states’ rights versus the federal government.

The official announcement of today’s ceremony did not explain why the honor is being granted now, almost a decade after the final episode of Walker was filmed.

Chuck Norris Made Honorary Ranger + Chuck Norrisisms

The honor is being granted now, 10 years later, because Rick Perry is rewarding his loyal supporter.

Many years ago I had the opportunity to see Chuck Norris when he was still in competition, he was nothing less than amazing. The guy Norris was fighting was pretty well matched to him, they were having a great fight, right up until the time Norris went into that spinning roundhouse kick and broke the guy’s nose. Fight over.

No thread about Norris would be complete without a list of Chuck Norrisisms:

Chuck Norris Uppercut a horse and made a giraffe.

Chuck Norris died 20 years ago; Death is afraid to tell him…

Chuck Norris has been intimate many times but hasn’t lost his virginity because Chuck Norris never loses.

Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that’s why there are no signs of life

Jesus can walk on water but Chuck Norris can swim through land

When Chuck Norris jumps in the water, Chuck Norris doesn’t get wet. The water gets Chuck Norris.

In the beginning there was nothing. Then Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked Nothing in the face and said, “Get a job.”

There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.

Chuck Norris doesn’t wear a watch - HE decides what time it is.

Chuck Norris doesn’t read books - he stares them down until they give him the information he wants.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - and Chuck Norris.

There is no such thing as global warming: Chuck Norris was cold, so he turned the sun up.

Chuck Norris is so good all he has to do is play a pretend Texas Ranger and he becomes one in real life…

That last one is my personal favorite!

    Chuck beat the best Koreans in 1958, in Korea, in their combat sport.
    Chuck Norris in short in height, but not stature.
    Truly enjoyed the “Walker, Texas Ranger” TV series.
    I like the guy. Glad he is here in Texas.
    Not sure if the “politics” will tarnish him a little.

    I never really liked the show ‘ Walker, Texas Ranger’…but I did and still do admire the man and his sport. I too saw him fight years ago…his spinning roundhouse kick was great….and I think he was the first to use the ‘sweep’ the take his opponents feet out from under them during the competition.
    The best thing about him is he can do all that with is hands and feet….but he still likes guns.

    I always thought Chuck Norris had read one book: The Bible.

    I don’t think he can stare that down.

  6. TexasFred says:

    Katie, were you born with NO sense of humor or do you have to work at it??

  7. Katie says:

    Actually I thought it was very funny. But picture this: Every book in the world running away from Chuck but one. The one he gets his strength from. Together they kick ass on the Koran.

    Very funny post though.

    Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door!

    Also, I heard years ago that Chuck was a “part time peace offer” (not sure of the official term) and worked in east Texas. Even if not true, the question remains, can you even imagine being pulled over by CHUCK FREAKING NORRIS!?!?!?

    The first time that I ever saw Chuck Norris was at the 1964 Winternational’s in Long Beach. He did One Steps with Bruce Lee that day. The rest is history.
