A long time ago, in a twitterverse far away, I tweeted that, "Chuck Norris once had a staring contest with a statue and won." A friend then asked me, "Which statue?" I needed something smart and/or witty to say, so I replied with, "The Colossus of Rhodes." Chuck Norris staring down a statue is funny, but Chuck Norris staring one of the seven wonders of the world into crumbling from fear is just a whopper of a punchline.

Yesterday, a quiz show, I think it was Jeopardy or Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader, asked a question about one of the seven wonders of the world, and it showed this picture:

I said, "Oh, that's the Colossus of Rhodes." I felt like a freakin' genius for the first time in my life.

And here's a picture of Dusty Rhodes, just because I think he's kind of funny looking.
