Chuck Norris in the field of typography

miha's picture

In the beginning was the Word. Then Chuck added other letters, numbers and signs.

Some letters are so afraid of Chuck Norris that they form ligatures.

FontLab never crashes for Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris can tell whether the font is Arial or Helvetica – blindfolded.

Chuck Norris can literally draw a space glyph.

Chuck Norris knows where the circle begins.

Chuck Norris doesn’t have to make spacing and kerning, glyphs do that themselves.

Chuck Norris can use zoom tool in FontLab up to the point where you can see specific atoms.

It’s better not to see typefaces as good or bad; there is just a list of permitted fonts allowed to be (ab)used. List made by you know who.

Chuck Norris doesn’t like children. That’s why Comic Sans is on that list.

Chuck Norris once started designing a typeface when he was drunk. That night the “w” was born.

Feel free to add other facts or image material.

It's all how you work the media.
Chuck Norris is a bit of a laughing stock.
Perhaps if he had not agreed to be killed in the Coliseum by Bruce Lee in Return of the Dragon things might have been different (Bruce was the star and Chuck took the cash, putting on 20lbs for the role—though without the cachet DeNiro got for Raging Bull), or had died young.
Lee is a legend.
Van Damme gained some cred in the postmodern JCVD.
Steven Seagal…

Exactly, and he is one of many. Creationistic riff-raff!

Steven Seagal…

Looks like he's getting desperate...

I wonder how many people are locked-up in Jefferson Parish with Seagal on the force.

Portrayed by the media (or on a forum like this), I’d probably be a ultra right-wing evangelical christian douchebag myself, although I don’t have Chuck’s amazing beard and differ in opinion with him on a lot of topics.

Chuck Norris doesn't have opinions... he has knuckles.

... and on each of those knuckles is a lustrous beard.

Every document Chuck Norris has ever published has been perfect-bound... that is, bound perfectly by his own two hands.
