But Would He Taste Good In Stew??

Only in America do we look to a fat rodent for weather prediction. Only in America is the rodent as accurate as the weathermen on television.

Doesn't this furry bastard always see his shadow??? As if I need the buck-toothed prognosticator to tell me we're going to see more winter. When I go outside, and it's so cold I can practically cut glass, I have a pretty good idea that winter is upon us, and not going away anytime soon.
I guess it could be worse. I could have been this lucky girl who's getting a wedding proposal on Groundhog Day. Some girls want flowers. Some want romance. Some girls want to be surrounded by thousands of freezing idiots, grown men in top hats who believe in an understood language with groundhogs, a guy in a 7 foot groundhog costume, and the smell of groundhog turds lingering in the air.
I guess it gives an entirely new spin to Gobbler's Knob.

I saw on the news earlier that phil is right 80 percent of the time. He is way better than Gary Leizak.

Now you take back what you said about Willard Scott!

I thought it was Easter when Jebus rose from the dead, and stepped out of his tomb that he saw His Shadow and we had 6 more weeks of winter.

I must be confused.
