PZ Myers vs. Chuck Norris

Inspired by this, I thought we would try this:
i-bc81a4b549b8bcbe51f21b8db1a809b3-PZ_Myers_vs_Chuck_Norris.jpg

You know the Chuck Norris Facts meme, right? With items such as:

Jesus walked on water, but Chuck Norris swam through land

or

The chief export of Chuck Norris is pain.

Well, an (all too quick, possibly) Google search has revealed that the Chuck Norris (oh, you do know that Chuck is a creationist, right?) has not been translated into a PZ Myers meme. And if it has, we’re gonna do it again.

So, ferinstance:

So, what does PZ Myers have behind his beard?

A chin? No! He has another argument against religion behind his beard! Ha!

But I know you can do better. So do it below:

    The “Z” in PZ stands for Z, not Zoroaster.

    vs.

    “PZ Myers does not “style” his hair. Period.”

    “Chuck Norris uses Tabasco Sauce for eye drops.”

    But…

    PZ Myers uses squid for eyes. In that example about the evolution of the eye.

    PZ’s zebrafish can model (and thereby help cure) cancer. Too bad he never cries.

    … Norris’s power lies in his ability to kick you in the face with his feet — but Myers does it with the power of his mind.

    That and the laser eyes.

    Chuck has been kicked in the head at least 100 times. PZ far fewer.

    Rather than being birthed like a normal child, Chuck Norris instead decided to punch his way out of his mother’s womb. Shortly thereafter he grew a beard.

    Vs.

    Rather than being birthed like a normal child, PZ Myers instead decided to rusty nail his way out of his mother’s womb. PZ was born with a beard.

    Chuck Norris being an outspoken Christian has only one enemy he cannot defeat, PZ Myers in his Eucharist studded armor.

    PZ says, “I think this is a case where the black-and-white simplifications of a creationist mind do a far better job of generating catch-phrases than we etiolated intellectual elitists can.”

    Gauntlet. Thrown.

    -Creationists pay royalties to PZ whenever he reviews one of their crap books.
    -PZ knows the square root of negative one. (Okay, and in that vein, Diogenes of Sinope was looking for him, it rains in California when PZ is there, Bigfoot used to be “Bighead” until PZ came along, and PZ messes with Texas.)
    -AGCT and U are reducible to PZ.
    -PZ gets more hate letters than Ken Ham gets applause.

    These are fun.

    Yeah, he’s not quite cartoonish enough for Chuck Norris-style facts.

    Honestly, if we’re going to get into folktales, an Anansi or Coyote model would be much better than the Paul Bunyanesque Chuck Norris Facts.

    In the time it takes you to read this, PZ Myers will have evolved another penis.

    Life begins when PZ Myers classifies it.

    PZ Myers naturally selected your sister last night. Twice.

    PZ Myers will reduce the complexity of your face if you don’t STFU.

    Chuck Norris prays to crackers; PZ Myers chucks prayers into his crack.

    The Cambrian explosion originated in PZ Myers’ khakis.

    PZ Myers shits Higgs bosons.

    Abiogenesis got started when PZ Myers traveled back through time and spit into a puddle.

    Jesus wasn’t crucified – he died when PZ Myers talked him into swallowing his own tongue.

    Jesus rose from the dead three days later when PZ Myers gave him a transfusion of his own blood. PZ Myers let Him live as a test for atheists.

    Chuck Norris was a failed experiment to clone PZ Myers.

    Chuck Norris invented the question mark.
    PZ Myers improved it.

    Chuck Norris know the last digit of PI.
    PY Myers, the last atom of the ribosome.

    Chuck Norris describes human beings as “a sociable holder for blood and guts”. PZ Myers religious being as “a sociable holder for arrogance and denialism”.

    Chuck Norris is so tough he can survive a direct hit by lightning.

    On the other hand, he can be laid low mentally by a Christian fairy story.

    Which proves that, if you think every problem has a physical solution and you never have to learn to develop your own independent mind, even the toughest guys can be turned into willing slaves of medieval churchy shaman-wimps.

    PZ Myers, on the other hand, is not only smart enough to stay out of the rain, but is also immune to religion. In the modern world, THAT’s the definition of a strong man.

    If placed in Schrodinger’s experiment, both PZ Myers live but God dies.

    Just saying PZ Myers’ name can heal wounds caused by Dick Cheney’s shotgun.

    The “demon” in Laplace’s demon and Maxwell’s demon? PZ Myers.

    Not only does God not exist, all of us are merely figments of PZ Myers’ imagination.

    (The Schrodinger’s experiment one is a riff from a ‘Sarah Palin fact.’)

    Chuck Norris is God, and PZ thoroughly desecrated his body. He declined to bite it, though. Can’t say I blame him for that. I mean, look at THAT beard.

    I believe someone can find a good variation of:

    Chuck Norris fights evolution in a martial-arts kind of way by using scientists’ own words against them!

    If you make Chuck Norris mad, he’ll hit you. If you make PZ Meyers mad, he’ll feed you to Cthulhu who will devour your body but preserve your brain in an endless nightmare for all eternity.

    Chuck Norris believes that christians will float off into the sky and vanish in the Rapture. PZ Myers WISHES christians would float off into the sky and vanish, but he knows better.

    When Chuck Norris went to the doctor and the doctor told him he had dyspepsia, Chuck Norris hit his knees and started praying. When the doctor told PZ Myers he had dyspepsia, PZ just took a tums and went home.

    The latest thing Chuck Norris has done is to campaign for a crazy young earth creationist. The latest thing PZ Myers has done is make several hundred million catholics all crap themselves in apoplectic rage.

    PZ Myers and Chuck Norris met on a street. Chuck bellows how tough he is, growls, and looks menacing. PZ says “let’s see how hard you can punch”. PZ holds his hand in front of a brick wall and says “punch my hand”. Chuck punches PZ’s hand with all his might, unfortunately, PZ’s hand is no longer there. PZ waits for Chuck to finish sucking on his knuckles… “Wow, you are really tough”!

    A while later, Chuck runs into Jackie Chan who says “I heard you ran into PZ Myers” A smirk crosses Chuck’s face, he looks around for a wall, but there are is none in sight. Chuck holds his hand in front of his nose “punch my hand”.

    Both Chuck and PZ were swallowed by a whale. Chuck fought valiantly to get out of the whale’s belly for three hours then prayed for another three, all to no avail. Finally, PZ put aside the papers he was grading, stood up and tickled the whale’s gag reflex. He then turned to his exausted rival and asked, “Elevator up, Chuck?”

    PZ Myers knows there’s no God, he knows because he put God on an Eucharist and ate him.

    PZ can sequence a Zebrafish genome just by looking at it.

    PZ made all the Catholic priests celibate just to get them out of the gene pool.

    PZ invented evolution because he didn’t want to have to design everything.

    Global warming is man made, but it’s not from carbon, it’s just PZ getting steamed at creationists.

    PZ and Dawkins once walked into a church, and deconverted a fringe religion.

    I just posted this over at Pharyngula and thought I’d repeat it here in case I’d missed offending someone:

    ————–

    No offense, but you scientists are such…scientists. How is “rational mammalian biped” and even more egregious nerdism going to convince the Chuck Norris fan belt that PZ is a worthy challenger? I’m not saying my contribution is brilliant, but I’d expect it to have some general appeal. Tell you what…you scientists keep explaining us to ourselves and saving the world, and we English academics (who may not be good for much else) will try and make the message marketable. Here’s a limerick:

    “Eulogy for Chuck Norris”

    Now let us all pray for Chuck Norris (creationist),
    Who crusaded for God ‘gainst the humanist atheist.
    Braving hell’s hottest fires,
    He attacked the beast Myers,
    But PZ was the best confrontationist.
