Grace = Fierce!

The 5 People I'd Want on My Side in a Bar Fight

If I was ever to be involved in an all-out bar brawl, here’s my dream posse…

GRACE JONES: She’s simply scary... just look at her! Would you mess with that? I saw her “My Jamaican Guy” music video as a child and have been haunted by her creepy vibe ever since.

JESCO WHITE: I’m a West Virginia girl, and as such, I know that I’ll never find anyone tougher than a mountain man from the hollers. “Dancing Outlaw” Jesco White and his clan “The Wonderful Whites of West Virginia” have such a reputation for lawless living that they’ve inspired three films about their hard-living, hard-partying ways. Fiercely protective mountaineers are in their element dominating any fight, anywhere, anytime.

CHUCK NORRIS: Of course! Chuck Norris: martial artist extraordinaire, Texas Ranger, and inspiration behind a gazillion beat-em-up internet memes. He can take down ANYBODY. Chuck, how could I not put you on my team?!

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: He’s best known as a chef and host of the Travel Channel’s “No Reservations”, and you might be thinking, why the heck would I waste a valuable fighting position on this guy? 3 reasons: First, he’s tough. Read “Kitchen Confidential” and you’ll see that he’s no pushover. Second, he has such a cool charm about him that he can fit in wherever he goes; he’ll be able to recruit the rest of the bar onto my team. Lastly, underneath the rough exterior you’ll find that he’s a genuine diplomat. He’s the triple-threat dark horse in this fight!

ANDRE THE GIANT: Ummmm, he’s 7’4. Did you see “The Princess Bride”? It’s THAT GUY.

And there you have it, one little librarian’s fantasy backup crew. Think you could whoop us? I seriously doubt it, but I'd like to know... who would you want on your side in a bar fight?

Amazon Says: Millions of people around the world know Chuck Norris as the star of more than 20 motion pictures, including "Delta Force," "Missing in Action," and "Return of the Dragon." Millions more know him as a martial arts expert, the only man in the Western Hemisphere to hold an 8th degree Black Belt Grand Master in Tae Kwon Do. And then there are others who know him from his eight seasons on CBS’s longest running series, "Walker, Texas Ranger." What many don't know is that Chuck Norris is a sincere Christian—a man whose faith plays a role in everything he does. Against All Odds is an inspirational story of how Norris overcame abject poverty from childhood, the effects of his father’s alcoholism and desertion of the family, and his own shyness and lack of strength and ability early in his life. Norris writes candidly about how he was able to overcome such obstacles in his life—giving full credit to God. less...

Amazon Says: New York Chef Tony Bourdain gives away secrets of the trade in his wickedly funny, inspiring memoir/expose. Kitchen Confidential reveals what Bourdain calls "twenty-five years of sex, drugs, bad behavior and haute cuisine." Last summer, The New Yorker published Chef Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Bourdain spared no one's appetite when he told all about what happens behind the kitchen door. Bourdain uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable book, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike. From Bourdain's first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as dishwasher in a honky tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown (where he witnesses for the first time the real delights of being a chef); from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, to drug dealers in the east village, from Tokyo to Paris and back to New York again, Bourdain's tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable. Kitchen Confidential will make your mouth water while your belly aches with laughter. You'll beg the chef for more, please. less...
