Slovaks chuck Norris for bridge
The Slovakian powers that be have rejected the result of an internet poll and named a new bridge in the country after something other than Chuck Norris. About 12,500 bridge enthusiasts (and Chuck maniacs) voted to name the structure after the star of Karate Kommandos. This is the second time Chuckistas have attempted to name a bridge after their hero in that part of the world. In 2006, Norris nudged ahead in a poll carried out in Budapest to find a moniker for what is now the Megyeri Bridge. The new bridge has been named the Freedom bridge in honour of those who died trying to escape communist Europe.
