'Chuck Norris Bridge'

Only one of these facts is true:

Fact: Chuck Norris can turn milk into yogurt simply by staring at it...

Fact: Chuck Norris once said he hated moles. That's why they live underground...

Fact: Chuck Norris will soon span the river dividing Slovakia and Austria in just one bound...

It is of course the last one (though you never know with Chuck).

Locals were asked to name a new bridge in Slovakia, and with the choice of Chuck Norris, Maria Theresa (an Austro-Hungarian empress) and the Devinska (the name of a local village), they voted overwhelmingly for the star of classics such as The Delta Force and Missing in Action.

The Slovakian public is voting online for the bridge's new name, but it looks set to be 'Chuck Norris Bridge' with Maria Theresa a distant second.

The final decision will be up to a regional assembly, but regional Governor Pavol Freso has said it would follow the wishes of the people in the Internet ballot where Norris leads as the top choice for the bridge's name.

"The same way as we have so far been building it in full sight of the public, we will seek that the name is accepted by the public as well," he said.

The voting will run until April. So far, Chuck Norris has 74% of the vote.
