Is Cory Booker the new Chuck Norris? The Newark mayor has become an internet sensation and sparked many legends after he saved a woman from a burning house. Though Booker said he's not a superhero, that hasn't stopped the interwebs from buzzing about the man, the myth, the legend.
A new tumblr blog SuperCoryBooker has been created, offering various memes about the mayor.
Booker's harrowing act has also inspired the Twitter hashtag #corybookerstories, with people offering various Chuck Norris-style myths and legends about the mayor.
