Merch: Fonzie Kite Book

Wow, it doesn't get much weirder than this thing. Bike Safety, I get that but why is Fonzie teaching anybody about Kite Safety? I mean, how many deaths a year come from Kite accidents in the first place? Can't we just accept that if you die in a Kite accident, you weren't meant for this world and you'd probably have died in some sort of vending machine incident anyway.

I think the thing that I really like about this is the cover, Fonzie and Richie are gleefully frollicking in a park while an open shirted Tom Bosley smilingly approves. If my son and a 20 something drifter are flying a kite on their weekends and invited me to watch, I think I'd have a more confused look on my face.

So glad the real Tom Bosley chose to button up; a bare chested Mr. C. would have been more than I could handle.

I'd like to see something like a Pinky Tuscadero frisbee or hula-hoop safety book - Roz was a stone cold fox.
