Honestly, a lot of my favourite elements of popular media have come about directly from writers being passive-aggressive.

Let me give you a classic example: Happy Days. For a lot of folks reading this post, it’s probably before your time, but you’re likely to at least be familiar with Fonzie, a supporting character played by Henry Winkler who ended up being so popular that he’s literally the only thing anybody remembers about the show.

Now, if you recognize the name, you might also know that one of Fonzie’s more notable quirks is that he tends to take his motorcycle with him everywhere - even indoors, including many places where there’s no obvious way for him to have gotten it there. What you might not know, however, is why the writers came up with this running gag in the first place.

Y’see, Fonzie was originally conceived as the “bad influence” character - the cool, dangerous bad boy. As part of that characterisation, the writers wanted to have him wear a leather jacket. (Because it was the 1970s, and that counted as edgy back then.) The network censors, however, objected, claiming that allowing him to wear the jacket would encourage juvenile delinquency and gang violence. (Again, it was the 70s.)

Eventually, the writers worked out a deal whereby they’d be allowed to have Fonzie wear the jacket - but only if he was riding or otherwise physically near his motorcycle, since a leather jacket is a common article of safety equipment when operating a non-enclosed vehicle, and we can’t let impressionable kids see somebody riding a motorcycle without proper safety equipment, can we?

Then they just wrote the motorcycle into every scene, regardless of whether it made sense or not, thereby allowing Fonzie to wear the jacket all the time.

This is my dog, Fonzi! He is a poodle mix. We rescued him from the animal shelter in 2009, when he was 2! He will turn 10 this year, but he still acts like a puppy! We love him very much!

Durian Rider is still labeling u fake. Such a shame as he is getting a lot of people convinced that you are not true to your colours and I can only think it will end up with people not wanting to follow you. Durian also mentioned that you are ranking in the money, I suppose too thanks to us morons who thought you were true but came to hear that you are FAKE.

1. I know who I am, what I do and my values in life and what I do online especially. 

2. His reason for me being “fake” is that Jonah my partner was sitting aside at the next table alone when I was sitting at the table just over with fonzie, bonny..etc. Jonah didn’t want to join the table because honestly he doesn’t have the same interests or get along with them comfortably, I told him to come over but he rather sit alone and he was completely fine with that, he only looked bummed out cause his phone has no battery.

For photos he doesn’t like taking photos together to post online and for videos, I’ve made some with him but whenever I actually go to film he hates it so I’m not going to drag him to do something he isn’t interested in doing just to get the views or make it look like we are some social media couple thing hahah (in saying this occasionally I’ll drag him to film a what he eats because as much as he hates filming he still wants to show what dudes can eat being vegan)

He is not interested in being photographed or being in videos and he has his own crowd of people he hangs around which have the same interests as him or just people he can socialise with easily and comfortably.

What’s funny is if I were to have Jonah online or in every photo that would some how end up being fake or whatever but because we just don’t take photos together that is also being fake or equals to me not caring about Jonah… We have been dating for almost 2 years next month, love each other a lot, have been close friends for 5 years and have spoken about anything and everything, especially this topic since I would love to have him in my photos or videos but it’s him that doesn’t want to and I respect that, he rather be behind the camera. another example I would love for him to start training again but he hates the gym now and love skating, I’m not going to force him to do something he hates. Fake for me would be making him train and take selfies together acting like some fitness couple or something or making his what I eat videos something it’s not just to make him look like he eats super healthy hahahah.. so yeah!

Another thing regarding money, I say NO to offers that pay around $1000-4000 for promoting products that I genuinely do not want to endorse.. products like lifesum app for example that everyone promotes (I didn’t want to endorse it because 1. I don’t use that stuff (only cronometer for the nutrients which this app does not have) and 2. it’s about counting calories and what you burned..etc and I actually think about those out there who can possibly develop an eating disorder through these things). and other things like waste trainers, protein powders, weight loss pills or sups, teeth whitening, detox products, games, makeup and the list goes on…

So just because I generate income online does not = being fake.
