It's been a good ride so far!

Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

So I guess for at least some time he really was COOL!


A good friend sent me this last night.  He did all the research based on a bet he had with a friend.  I don't remember the first episodes of Happy Days, maybe I missed them, who knows?  I did always remember The Fonz riding a "small" bike, certainly not a bad ass big twin....  To be completely honest, I thought the Fonz rode an early Sporty, I was wrong on all accounts with the exception of the "small" bike.  As it turns out, The Fonz throughout most of the series rode a Triumph and not a Harley.  But, as proven last night by my friend Joey Chop Chamberlain, at the beginning, The Fonz rode this 47 Knuck!  Well, allow me to re phrase that.  The Fonz sat on a 47 Knuck.  Apparently it was too difficult for The Fonz to kick start and too big to ride and he was too scared and that is why they switched him to a Triumph.... Who knew that the one and only Arthur Fonzarelli was a chicken shit pansy?  Certainly not me.... at least up until I was 29 years old.  I can't tell you how many girls that got to see my Fonzie Pillow.  They all thought it was cute!  CUTE?  How dare you use such a term when speaking of THE FONZ!  Cute, no!  Cool, yes! 

I would like to say it was because of Fonzie that I ride the same 47 Knuck, but that would in fact be lying to you and you guys no damn well that I will never ever do that to ya!  I will say that in my time, I have tried to punch and pound a few juke boxes in to playing a song for me and all that ever did was get me a really sore hand and tossed out of a few bars! 

As a matter of fact, with all this Happy Days reminiscing, I may have the little woman dress up like Pinky Tuscadero tonight and we will have some Happy Days ourselves.  Then tomorrow I'll have her dress up like Leather, from Leather and the Suedes.... ah hell, I'll ask if she can have a friend join in and I can finally live out the fantasy of banging Joanie when she joined the Suedes and was going to leave to go on tour with the band.  I would wrap a bandanna around my thigh like Chachi but even then, as a child, I didn't think he was all that cool and seeing what an asshole he turned out to be in real life now, I know I made the right choice.

All I can say in closing is that although I never got to see nearly as many "chicks" as Fonzie did, both myself and my Fonzie Pillow Case sure did our very best to try and nail as many as we could.  Looking back, right now, I really wish I still had that pillow case.  Long live THE FONZ!

Finally, here is one last thought for you all.  How old were you when you realized that The Fonz wasn't just kissing all of those girls?  I think I was 29!

After the initial post of this blog, a friend sent me another photo and I just felt that I had to add to it!  Sorry for cheating and changing a blog from it's original post... but hey, this is different, it's THE FONZ!

Till we see each other on the road,

Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ass!

Your friend,
Jack Shit


  1. I swear to God Jon was just telling me last night about a kid who dressed like the Fonz in gradeschool, and he thought he was the coolest. Until the kid threw up spaghetti and milk.

  2. I also heard, aside from the size difficulty..hd didnt want the bike associated (or so I heard) with the show in case it flopped...but I could be mistaken...

  3. I would have thought that would have made him even cooler than Fonzie.... especially if it came through his nose!

  4. The other reason was the stations didn't want the fonz have the biker image hence why the had him wear the white jacket, later they let him wear a leather jacket but it had to be brown or no leather!
