Ever had an Arthur Fonzerelli moment?

  • made an item of electrical equipment (not necessarily a jukebox) work by whacking it?

  • held a meeting in a men's room?

  • made out at Inspiration Point?

  • water-skied in a leather jacket (jumping a shark not required)?

  • gone "Aaayyyyyyy" or "SIT ON IT" to anyone (portly paterfamilias ideally)?

  • walked into a room only for everyone to whoop and applaud?

There was a new kid once at my primary school who pimp-walked into the playground on his first day, with his hands raised in the Fonz "don't crowd me" gesture

I can remember nothing else about that particular kid. I don't think he made much of an impression

I often look in the mirror in the morning, and realise with pleasure that I need do nothing to my hair.

I'm bald, though, so it may not count.

Do you give your imaginary quiff a caress anyway LG, with arched eyebrows?

No. I just go "Heyyyy.." while leaning away from the mirror.

I once pretended to be a nerd to infiltrate a girl biker gang's pad to rescue my kidnapped cousin.

I have been known to thump bits of electrical equipment, it doesn't always get them working though. Probably need more practice.

How hard was it, keeping up that pretence?

lapsedcat - 29 Nov 2018 12:05:08 (#8 of 13)

I took to it like a duck to water.

I fluster middle-aged women sometimes with my flirtatious ways.

At university we had a jukebox that used to regularly select Jose Felliciano’s fuck awful version of Light My Fire. It would then get stuck halfway through.

We would take it in turns to thump or kick it. On one occasion I went over, slipped on s spilt beer and flailed into it head first.

This got a round of applause and a small scar.

I've made tings work, after giving them a bash.

I have never hung about in toilets, with a gang of pubescent acolytes.

My first guitar amp needed a thump from time to time to stop it buzzing. In fairness, it was more musical than my playing.
