Henry Winkler, a man best known for playing the role of "The Fonz" on the popular TV series
Happy Days, has been awarded an honorary Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his work helping young children with dyslexia.
People are using their 140 characters to congratulate The Fonz on his award and are writing, "Henry Winkler came to my dyslexic daughter's school. She loved him. Total #hero," "I used to enjoy watching Happy Days as a kid (who didn't fancy Joanie); so well done to Henry Winkler #news OBE The Fonz" and "Henry Winkler receives honorary OBE for work re dyslexia. Not for skills with a comb #heyyyy."
