Seymour is one of several places in America that claims to be the first to invent the Hamburger. Well, we all know Seymour was the first with Charlie’s Hamburgers in 1885 at the Outagamie County Fair, as celebrated at Burger Fest every year in Seymour, Wis. We will take you back to the days of “Happy Days” with the Fronz, Ditchie, Potsie, Ralph Mouth, Laverne, Shirley and Pinky. Ditchie challenges the boys to a contest to see who can get a kiss from the opposite sex before midnight at the fair, loser runs thru downtown Seymour in their skivvies. The boys check in with the Fronz first to get a little counseling on the matter. Meanwhile, the girls are having boy problems themselves; Laverne, Shirley and Pinky joined a bowling league sponsored by their employer, Seymour Bottling, to meet some bonafide boys. Unbeknownst to them it’s an all-girl league, no guys! They decide to go old school and check out the fair and Charlie’s Hamburger stand. Hilarity ensues.
