“Jack Bauer can stick Martial Arts, and his deputy, up Jet Li's ass!”
Throughout the history of machismo there have been many mega-bad-asses. You know some of them, like Darth Vader, Rodan, Norman Bates, Frankenstein, Jack Dempsey, King Kong, Samuel L. Mothafuckin' Jackson, Joe Pesci, Godzilla, Rambo, Superman, Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee, and even Tony Jaa. But among all super-humans, Jack Bauer is America’s most horrific terror agent. He's not even remotely an anti-terror agent, he's a pro-terror agent, plain and simple. He fights terror with horror. The only notable differences between Jack Bauer and the terrorists is that he's a "horrorist", he's way worse, and he represents truth, justice, and the American way.
Earning well over 13 million dollars per season, Jack Bauer was the highest paid television actor and millions would spend 24 long weeks just to see what Jack did in one day. Everyone's life depended on the outcome. Bauer is different than Norris or Rambo, who are all about round-house kicks, brute martial arts, using a rattle snake as a condom, 50 caliber machine guns, eating horrible things, and skill. Jack Bauer is about apologizing to his partners for rendering them unconscious, and shooting people above the knee, torturing the bad guys, also giving his word, going dark, and fighting for justice while being chased by both the good guys and the bad guys at the same time that Jack's chasing them. And Jack shits on Martial Arts and his deputy, and never eats or uses birth control. He even gets repeatedly killed and resurrected, while neither Chuck Norris nor Rambo could ever survive getting killed. Bauer Facts are really quite a distinct genre.
Primary differences between Jack Bauer Facts & Chuck Norris Facts
There is simply no comparison between Norris and Jack Bauer. For example, Chuck Norris uses the Round-house-kick, a branch of Kung Fu - Jack Bauer uses OVER-WHELMING FORCE, a branch of Jack Dempsey. Jack Bauer can actually act - Chuck Norris is not acting! Jack Bauer doesn't consider sex unless he gets to be on the top - Chuck Norris doesn't consider sex. Jack Bauer is a cool-patriot - Chuck Norris is a red-neck hill-billy. Jack Bauer is All-American - Chuck Norris is 95% Red Indian and 5% Mexican. Jack Bauer Facts are documented, scientific truth - Chuck Norris Facts are just preposterous nonsense. Bauer says, "Who ever said you can't fight terror with horror, never watched 24!" - Norris says, "Who ever said you can't fight illegal immigration with round-house kicks, never watched, Walker, Texas Ranger." - Bauer's job is to protect the United States border - Norris' job is to protect the Mexican border. Norris counted backwards from infinity - Meanwhile Jack Bauer killed a finite number of terrorists, and counting.
