Fonz to Go Bronze in Milwaukee

5/27/2008 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Milwaukee plans on honoring Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli by erecting a bronze statue of the greaser along the Milwaukee River. Heyyyy!
Fonz to get his own statue
Chances are the statue will not be of the Fonz riding a motorcycle -- since the bike he rode on "Happy Days" is British and Milwaukee is the hometown of Harley Davidson. That's good news for fans who are hoping for a statue depicting the infamous leather jacket-wearing, water-skiing, shark-jumping Fonz which birthed the term, "jump the shark."

The unveiling of the Fonzie statue has been set for August 19.

I live in Milwaukee and I cannot for the life of me figure out WHY we are getting a statue of a fictional person - the FONZ is not REAL - and to have it be a statue of him jumping a shark - that was pretty much the demise of the entire show...so yes, let's point out the lowest point of the show with a statue to a fictional charachter...I'm so proud to live here....
sometimes we are morons
