Meme of the moment: Chuck Norris is Dead. Werner Herzog Killed Him.

Chuck Norris is Dead. Werner Herzog Killed Him. - Blog Stage - Acting in Film, TV, Theatre - Backstage


'Chuck Norris tames wild animals. Werner Herzog tames Klaus Kinski.'

Roger Ebert has even become a fan of the trend, allegedly originating the most popular tweet: 'Chuck Norris pounds nails through a 2x4 with his fist. Werner Herzog does it with his dick.'

That this meme has its origins on Twitter is particularly interesting, as it is one of the few memes that does not trace its origins to the trendsetting imageboard site 4chan (which is actually kind of nice, as most of their output is just plain unsavory).
