The city of Milwaukee wants to immortalize the Fonz (Henry Winkler) and build an $85,000 bronze statue of him for tourist to have as a stopping point in the middle of downtown Milwaukee.
So far $45,000 has been raised by Visit Milwaukee, the non-profit group that is there to promote the city as a spot for tourism and conventions. They are very confident that they will be able to raise the remainder of the money. I hope that the remaining $40,000 is reserved for his big bronze thumb.
When the Fonz was approached about this project, he was taken back by it, “It’s an honor. But it is so bizarre to think there should be a statue. I wasn’t sure it was something that could happen to me.”
Don’t feel so special Fonz, I’m sure you’re just phase 1 of the project. Laverne & Shirley will be Phase 2, and then the mafia will start buying the land your statue is on, and charge you rent.
Before I go, my jukebox has a crick in it, would you mind??? Aaaaaaaaaa.
