Chuck Norris Turns 70 Today, No Google Doodle?

Google and Chuck Norris have a long history. If you go to Google.com and search for [find chuck norris] and hit, "I'm feeling lucky" button you will be taken to this result that reads:

Google won't search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don't find Chuck Norris, he finds you.

So it is surprising to see that on the 70th birthday of Chuck Norris, Google doesn't have a special Google Doodle up. Chuck Norris was born on March 10, 1940 and 70 years later, I would have thought he would deserve a special Google logo.

I am not the only one who feels he deserves a logo. There is a large Google Web Search Help thread with complaints from Chuck Norris fans. In all honesty, I find this all very humorous.

Happy 70th Chuck!

Recent video of real Chuck Norris pushing down the earth (NO JOKE!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9Eo-TbivU4 It was recommended to me by a friend to put on my toilet Chuck's new "Official Chuck Norris Fact Book" and watch what happens. Every guest I have over is laughing from the bathroom. No joke! Every toilet in America needs one on it. Awesome caricature drawings too in each of the 101 entries. See and check out a few examples at http://books.google.com/books?id=cR6aJxgj21IC&dq=Official+ Chuck+NOrris+Fact+Book&printsec=frontcover&source=bl&ots=j2 P9WpmK9g&sig=x2NIugkPLY5EcsbHW6WTdFDnts&hl=en&ei=wzkfS7zWCc KWtgfkkKCbCg&sa=X&oi=bookresult&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CA4 Q6AEwATgK#v=onepage&q=&f=false

While it would have been cool for Google to do a Chuck Norris tribute, the claim that "Google and Chuck Norris have a long history" is not substantiated by the "find chuck norris" trick mentioned above. All that trick does is takes you to the first organic search result for that term, which happens to be a page made to look like the Google search engine. It even has a disclaimer at the bottom, stating that the website is NOT affiliated with Google. So, "The Internet and Chuck Norris have a long history"... not specificially Google. Nonetheless, it would have been amusing.

I feel sorry for Google. Now they're going to get a roundhouse kick in the face from Chuck Norris.

There is no such thing as search engine optimization. Just a list of websites Chuck Norris allows to live.

Chuck Norris is a joke both in his 'acting' and 'political' side. Blech.

As bizarre as it sounds, I think Google thought they could have offended some people by deciding to make a Chuck Doodle. Why? Religious people. Not sure they'd like to see google celebrate a person who is supposed to have the attribute of omnipotence. Google probably tries to avoid any political issues. I don't know, it's just a fancy theory. Besides, chuck jokes are fun, but the real man hasn't accomplished anything that exceptionnal, he's justa another actor, why make a doodle out of him?
