Actor Henry Winkler has unveiled a statue of his iconic Happy Days character Arthur "Fonz" Fonzarelli in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Yay for the Fonz!
Too bad that statue sucks it raw.
Ok, first let me start this little rant by pledging my love to The Fonz. We all loved the Fonz. Even those of you sitting there sayin' "Not me, man - I never liked that Fonzie guy" are totally lying to yourself and everyone else. At some point in your young life, you told someone to sit on it and you loved that fucking Awesome Moment of Burn, so you at least owe Mr. Arthur Fonzerelli your gratitude and respect.
Bless you, Henry Winkler, for bravely mugging and thumbs-upping for an hour with this fucking mess of a tribute to the lovable TV character you created. This statue looks absolutely nothing like the Fonz. It looks like Bob Eubanks fell into a carbon freezing chamber and kinda liked it. Aaaaaay!
Of course, my biggest concern is for Greater Milwaukee's metallic mime community:
Will the Bronze Fonz screw these homeless theatre students out of their "jobs"?
"It's an honor," Winkler said. "But it is so bizarre to think there should be a statue. I wasn't sure it was something that could happen to me."
It did happen to you, Hank. And for that, I am truly sorry.
