My post yesterday about Chuck Norris Facts reminded me of a song by Weird Al about Charles Neson Reilly:
The song is a bit hit or miss, and I’d never heard of Charles Nelson Reilly prior to the Weird Al song and so have grave doubts that the man lives up to the legend nearly as much as Chuck Norris lives up to his. Still, I do like one of CNR’s achievements mentioned in the song:
Charles Nelson Reilly won the tour de france with two flat tires and a missing chain.
(If you don’t know, the tour de france is a bicycle race, possibly the premier bicycle race in the world.)
