AUSTIN – I know, you already thought Chuck Norris was a Texan, right? Nope. He was born in Oklahoma.

But even so, the Texas State Senate named Chuck Norris an honorary Texan on Tuesday, presenting him with a wooden gavel to go with the Lone Star title.

Norris, 77, studied under Bruce Lee and starred in martial arts movies early in his career, then solidified his badass status with the TV series Walker, Texas Ranger, after which he was made an honorary Texas Ranger by then governor Rick Perry.

Norris is best known today for the online jokes and memes playing on his tough guy image — and the internet did not disappoint when it came to celebrating his new status as a Texan.
