Oh, NOW it’s Fucking ON, Bitches

Real weatherman gets all huffy about groundhog treading on his rightful turf:

We are expected to act as the groundhog’s spokesperson and explain thearchaic shenanigans of a bunch of old men with large top hatswho enjoy pulling a rodent out his hole, thrusting him in the air and making proclamations about whether or not winter will continue. This will be my 26th Groundhog Day as a broadcast meteorologist so I have heard just about every joke there is regarding the day.

We might as well ask a giraffe for stock picks, he could probably be just as accurate.

SoPunxsutawney Philis a punk when it comes to weather forecasting.

I’m so glad the Internet is killing journalism, some days, I really am.

    Even if we limit ourselves to the weather in the USA, on any given groundhog day, some will be in sunlight and some will be in adverse weather as the fronts move across the country.
    Of course, the obvious answer is that there are any number of groundhogs out there. Quite a few locations have their own “official” groundhog. The problem is that Pux Phil is a representation of the true weather groundhog as there are any number of Malls that have a representation of the Real Santa who is found in the mall my kids go to.
    Do the adults out there really need either this or the contents of the linked article explained to them?
    And Pansy and Darrel – hey, lay off the octopus. They are extremely intelligent to the point of being hard for aquaria to keep as they figure out how to move from tank to tank to find some fresh food. They can unscrew bottles within bottles to get to the treat inside. etc. 😉

    Another problem is hauling the poor guy out of his ‘hole’ 30 seconds after sunrise and declaring whether he ‘sees’ his shadow. The sun isn’t even up yet! Come back say noon or so, and check on the whole ‘shadow’ thing, m’kay?

    are you callin squids stupid?

  6. MapleStreet says:

    Don’t know if that ws directed to my comment. I’m not calling squids stupid by any means. They are fascinating and have an amazing use of camoflage methods. Just more highlighting the skills of the Octopus. No offense meant to other animals.
