It’s Groundhog Day Today And The Groundhogs Disagree

Groundhog fight!!

That’s like a cat fight, but not.

While the celebrities were waking up to their 2010 Oscars Nominations this morning, there was a showdown of sorts between Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania and Staten Island Chuck.

It’s Groundhog Day today – the one day each year when humans gather around a groundhog while he does or does not see his shadow, thus announcing whether or not there will be an early Spring.

My, we are an intelligent bunch, aren’t we?

This year there seems to be a little glitch, however. Punxsutawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck have conflicting predictions.

Chuck saw his shadow, meaning Spring is coming early. But Phil didn’t see his, meaning there are still six more weeks of Winter.

Ack! Now what are we going to do? Which groundhog is right? Is Spring coming early or not?

What’s going on?? I’m so confused.

Darn those groundhogs and their shadows!
