Umm, you answered your own question. In the original Chuck Norris joke it was Mr. T.

It was a rhetorical question. Meant as a joke. You know: "Who the hell is that guy?"

Anyway, I heard that Dr. Kromm is so great that he's the one who hands out the speeding ticket if you pass the speed of light.

Dr. Kromm is so awesome that SJG had to slow down the GURPS release schedule to avoid overwhelming the U.S. economy with his mighty Canadian export fu.

Mighty indeed are the deeds of Sifu Kromm.

I also heard that Dr. Kromm's tears can cure Munchkinism. Unfortunately he never cries (and kind of likes Munchkins anyway).

Whaddaya mean, "once"? Kromm was the secret defence of Britain during the Blitz!

I heard that when he did it he was in Canada and the Messerschmitt was in Germany.

On the ground.

Kromm ain't so tough. He's not even a Demon Prince.

I see your Kromm and counter with one Hackard.

And while there, he invented the radar, aircraft fire-control systems and radio game shows.

He also broke Margaret Thatcher's heart so badly that she never got over it.

I demand that you start another thread about Andrew Hackard!

Otherwise I shall ask said person to employ his powers of moderatorhood to pare away this off-topic discussion!

And besides, I heard Kromm is one-eighth Demon Prince. Nope, he's not descended from it, the man ate a freaking demon!
