    Chuck Norris can divest assets with a side kick.

    Chuck Norris can stop a merger with a finger.

    Should Chuck Norris be director of DG Comp, no leniency would be granted, because Chuck Norris shows no mercy.

  16. What’s the difference between Chuck Norris and the Commission? None, they both prosecute and adjudicate the villains, normally showing little mercy for them. And, they would eventually seek to obtain compensation from them, if they are still around and not gone bankrupt!

  17. In a revolving-door scenario, if Google had retained Chuck Norris to deal with the Commission, Mr. Almunia would have stated: “On a second thought, we see no real problems so far. We took issues because our products (read decisions) did not show up among the first ten results in Google’s search engine. But our Chief Economist told us it was our fault. We are going to improve the product, so that our customers are satisfied. Our competitors (read NCAs) are making our life hard these days… But hei! Summertime is at the door!”

    Enjoy your summer guys (this wish is mine, not Almunia’s)
