the reason he is so funny is because he is ridiculous. he looks like a monkey, and like steven seagal, he thinks he is somewhat asian. i personally think chuck norris is hilarious, but steven seagal is funnier, though people neglect to acknowledge(sp?) that. for example:
all chuck norris does is be a 65-year old ass kicking machine who won some karate tourney, and now he plays in low budget movies.
steven seagal, however, trained in some asian country to learn some crappy form of karate and be bad at it, and for that he thinks hes asian, and he looks funny, and he also happens to look like a computer programmer i know. also, he runs really, really, really funny like. he flops his arms when he runs and his face gets all funny.
now, lets compare pics:
chuck norris lookin like a monkey
steven seagal lookin funny as ever:
if you will notice, he looks incredibly asian in that pic. also, he was married to asian ladies, and almost all his kids have asian names. and he is allegedly buddhist. it just so happens that buddhism abhors(sp?) violence, and steven seagal loves to smack the foo out of people in his movies.
