The Bronze Fonz

Here in Milwaukee we take great pride in TV shows that take place in Wisconsin. Now some people think this is taking it a bit too far…. I couldn’t disagree more! I present to you the bronze Arthur Fonzarelli! Henry Winkler himself is standing in his signature pose with a grin on his face that tells us he’s rather pleased with himself. I think this should happen more often. Maybe a chrome Laverne or a statue of Wilmer Valderrama made entirely out of used gum. The stautue is by artist Gerald P. Sawyer. Apparently Milwaukee raised 85,000 to commission the statue…. I sh** you not.

Come on say it. I know you are dying to… Say it! “Eyyyyyyyyyy!”

Though if I had to choose I would opt for the Fonz jumping the shark, but I’ll settle for this.

    You’re 100% right, especially with the Fonz erected so close to water, that they should have been more factually correct, saved money on the bronze it took to finish his legs – completely wrong in color by the way – and just had him rising from the water holding a shark fin. The idiom “jump the shark” has survived as well as the show it sprung from, Happy Days, and the ill-fated episode that pointed to the show’s eventual demise as the Fonz jumped the shark while waterskiing. He should’ve stuck to sucking sodas.

    So wrong it’s right. From a city where baseball fans pee their pants in the stadium when the hometeam wins. And where you can get a Martini with a mushroom garnish. That’s quite the package on the Fonz, as well. I’m sure Henry Winkler is pleased!

    But why is he gold?
