A question for the all-knowing flist: How did Chuck Norris facts come about? And why Chuck Norris? I mean, yeah, they're funny, but... Chuck Norris? Really?

Chuck Norris Facts were originally seen on the Internet in early 2005. Conan O'Brien's Chuck Norris jokes on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (which generally center on Walker, Texas Ranger) have been seen as an inspiration for the fad. Chuck Norris Facts followed "facts" based on actors Vin Diesel[citation needed] and Bob Saget, and spawned similar "facts" about fictional character Jack Bauer from the television series 24, Mr. T, and other personages. The exaggerated style of these facts is similar to a recurring Saturday Night Live sketch called Bill Brasky. These are similar to "Tall tales" such as those of Paul Bunyan.

I suppose the question is why not Chuck Norris?
The jokes practically write themselves.
