    A new bridge in Hungary could be named after Hollywood action movie actor Chuck Norris unless the trend turns in an Internet vote organised by the Economy Ministry.

    Votes for the "Chuck Norris Bridge" had attracted 8,725 votes or 11 percent by Tuesday morning, just ahead of those cast in favor of naming it after Hungarian humorist Geza Hofi and three times more than for Szent Istvan, founder of the state.

    Votes can be cast until September 8 on the www.m0hid.gov.hu Web site, where people have put forward more than 500 nominations including Bud Spencer and Bob Marley, as well as names referring to construction delays such as "It Will Never Happen Bridge."

    Chuck Barris would be more fitting.

    Well, I just voted for Chuck.

    He's up to 14 percent now.

    Chuck Norris doesn't need a bridge: He just floats down the cliff and will walk on water if he needs to.

    Haven't been able to figure out how to add another choice though.

    "Lugnuts" would be a great name for a bridge.

    So would "Bitter Young Hack".

    Hey, everybody shut up! Once Dale gets three votes, you have to stay silent until he gets his fourth.
