The Fonz Demonstrates “The Honk”

posted by on October 12 at 11:15 AM

Aaaaaaaaaaaye, kids! “Safety” is COOL! And nobody knows better than Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzerelli from Happy Days. But let’s say you’re being sexually attacked by former Congressman Mark Foley—it’s simply not effective enough to yell “RAPE!” Because, let’s face it, with your past record? Your parents will never believe you. That’s why all the “COOL” kids are yelling the newest thing in rape or abduction protection, “THE HONK.” Let’s watch as the Fonz and a mentally impaired school teacher demonstrate “the honk” in this classic PSA.

Got it? GREAT! So let’s practice. At exactly 2:37 pm today—NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE—let out a huge HONK!! That’ll show those rapists!

Christ. It might not send someone running to your rescue, but it could certainly scare a rapist. A retro variation on the "if you're attacked, try to throw up or shit yourself" school of self-defense...

What kind of trouble did Henry Winkler get into? This screams of a court-imposed community service requirement.
