it took me a minute to get how the term orginated, then i saw the fonzie photo. do you think a contemporary example of a tv show might help ground the meaning for people who didnt experience happy days?

i am such an airhead! i just had a better look on the link and have found a very detailed entry explaining the origins of the saying. i'm still not too old to learn, lol.

Even though quite long in the tooth I didn't get it properly till I logged on to Wikpedia (we didn't have TV at home when I was growing up). Nice photo though.
