Last week I waxed philosophic about the idiocy known as The Dr. Phil Show. This week, and today in particular it’s Punxsutawney Phil. Groundhog Day the movie: Good idea. Groundhog Day the tradition: Stupid idea. The dimwitted people of Punxsatawney, Pennsylvannia have been shoving a rodent through a hole in a tree stump for almost 200 hundred years to find out if there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Hey morons, you live in the Northeast! There’s always 6 more weeks of winter! Check the calendar! It says that Spring starts on March 21st. That’s 7 weeks from now. You don’t need a rat being spooked by his shadow to figure this one out. At this point I’m getting tired of all these wanna-be Phil’s trying to horn in on my fame. If, coincidentally, a shot were to ring out in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania today and a certain rodent were to explode in a puff of fur, I was kidding when I wrote this. No harm meant, just a joke. You’ll all be my alibi right?

I will totally be your alibi.>>You are in Texas, no way could you have reached the nasty, vile creature, I mean Groundhog in time.
As your Vice President, I would have to advise you that, if anything happens to Punxsutawney Phil, you will no longer be in charge of the “button”! Poor P-PHil can’t be held accountable for the idiosyncrasies of mankind, and neither can you.
Punxsutawney Phil ain’t got nothin’ on you!>>I mean, it’s not like he can type.
I’ll be your alibi, too. Never could understand that Groundhog Day caper. You were blogging in Australia, if anything happens to that critter !! Take care, Meow
You are being such a grouch! Leave the damn animal alone. Unless you want to switch places…you can go stay in a cage and comeo out only on that day and he can blog lol>>-N
There’s 6 more weeks of winter??? *not that I mind, its felt like spring since the beginning of january*…
I didn’t hear a thing. I didn’t see a thing. I swear on a stack of groundhogs.
wooooooooohhoooooooo, LOST has started back!!!
Poor Phil. But he seems to have put the town on the map.>>Not like the groundhog fore-caster in these parts. Ever heard of Wireton Willy? (not even sure if I’m spelling its name right)>>I thought not….
