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!

    The groundhog was a scam from day one. A groundhog is a woodchuck by the way. It was like the lazy woodchuck that thought only that a stupid woodchuck would chuck wood while a groundhog could but would rather sleep in. Should call that lazy thing a WOULD-HOG.

    How’s a rodent going to change the tilt of the earth or keep the sun from crossing over the equator?! Well Moses did part the Red Sea, Santa can fit his fat @$$ down a chimney… I suppose if I would have put that last tooth I lost under my pillow I would have got something out of it.

    Winter will end and Spring will begin and eggs will stand at their ends this year at precisely 10:32 a.m. PDT on Saturday March 20 just as it’s been scheduled since the earth started running in circles around the sun.
