Split Personality

Maybe He’s In It For The Dough

An upmarket bakery in Split, Croatia, has got rid of burglars by placing a life-sized photo of Hollywood action star Chuck Norris in the window. The bakery had been broken into almost every week until they put up the poster of the karate champ with a sign saying: "This shop is under the protection of Chuck Norris."

FOOTNOTE: Chuck waggin’.

Oh, come on David. Puh-leeze tell me you are pulling our legs *grin* My kids know every Chuck Norris joke going. Hundreds of them! Yep, something for my children to proudly put on their resumes.

That should keep all the riff-raff away. Careful though, Chuck is getting old, and supporting losing candidates.

I LOVE it! Guess I'd better get myself a picture of Chuck ...cheaper than an electronic security system, that's for sure! ~Janine

I have read your blog before and in addition to taking great pictures, you are among the most prolific bloggers I have seen. I want to thank you for mentioning my blog Vexed Nation on Monday's POTD. Anything that gets people to read it is appreciated. Especially when they don't tell me that I suck. Thanks again Mr. Mcmahon.

Better than chucking the burglars out himself!

Chuck Norris's photograph has killed twenty men; his life-sized cardboard cutout has killed a hundred.
