What’s that you say? You weren’t aware that Hollywood legend and frequent Internet meme subject Carlos Ray “Chuck” Norris once resided in our fair city? Well, sir: It’s a fact. And not like those Chuck Norris “facts” that circulate around the Interweb. Or, at least it’s a fact according to Chuck Norris’s Wikipedia page.
Anyway, we actually sent a note to his people last week via chucknorris.com to see if they could shed a little more light on the Walker, Texas Ranger star’s time in our then-burgeoning suburban paradise. Alas, his people appear to have had more important things to do. Like, having his revolver collections cleaned, maybe. Or copy editing a reissue of his 2004 New York Times bestseller, “Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America.” Who knows? In any case, here’s a warm tribute from the good people at Mashable.
Happy belated birthday, Chuck Norris. And congratulations, Prairie Village, for helping spawn an American legend.
