Chuck Norris uses skillz to save Croatia bakery.

I heard about this on the radio today, and being an all-time fan of Chuck Norris jokes, HAD to post the details. Thanks to Nicole for the reminder with her post about CN jokes!

A POSH bakery in Split, Croatia, has been broken into almost every week. But not since the shop owners posted a life-sized photo of the toughest man in Hollywood Chuck Norris in the window.

The sign says: “This shop is under the protection of Chuck Norris.”

Now the bakery hasn't had a single burglary for more than a month.

Sales assistant Mirna Kovac said: "To be honest we just started it as a joke but it really has worked. Thieves haven't been anywhere near us for ages. People seem to respect him. "Everyone around here has seen his films and he's quite a popular character, perhaps even among criminals, so they've decided to leave us alone."

She added though: "We have had a few customers come in and ask us whether they can get Chuck's autograph. “They really believe he is sitting in our storeroom out the back ready to pounce on any burglars."


Some Chuck Norris jokes can be found here.

Sadly, my all-time favorite is not listed, but goes a little something like this: Chuck Norris and Superman once arm wrestled. The winner had to wear his underwear on top of his pants for the rest of his life.
