Answering the question: Charles Jenkins or Chuck Norris?

By Matt Napolitano, Humor Columnist

Facebook and many a Pride account have been abuzz with the brand new group that is sweeping Hofstra nation.  No, it's not Ladies Night at Dizzy Lizard, it's Charles Jenkins Facts. I mean, let's face it, it's the best thing to get you through class since Sporcle.  

However, you can't help but think back to 2008, when we were all doing the same thing with a different Chuck.  Chuck Norris facts were the best thing since sliced bread (which is apparently now the best thing since Charles Jenkins).  The claims of a man whose roundhouse kick toppled Saddam from power are now being tested by the claims of a man who knows how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie pop.

So the time has come.  Thanks to the help of Facebookers like you, we must now throw down.  Charles Jenkins. v. Chuck Norris.
