PITTSBURGH - An Ohio prosecutor who has light-heartedly filed charges against the famous Pennsylvania groundhog who fraudulently "predicted" an early spring says he may consider a pardon now that the animal's handler is taking the blame.

Well, I'm glad the courts are addressing this very important issue.

Well, to be fair....if you count the time between GroundsHog Day an the Spring equinox...it's 6 weeks. So it's always six weeks until spring.
What the weather will be like is anyones guess, but it will be Spring.

//yes I'm farking sick of 10 degree weather and snow.

Too late. I'm already on my way to lynch the little f*cker.
Woke up to 3 inches of snow....it's still snowing.

Well I blame manbearpig. Totally cereal.

If ground hogs are going to be prosecuted for fraud then why not press charges against weather forecasters?  Weather Channel is nervous.

Slow cooked Ground Hog is just the kind of food for a cold snowy day.

If you've ever been near Puxsutawney on "the day" you'll wish for six more weeks of daily nuclear strikes.

After it snowing today in DC, I am now pro global warming.

It's 42 and sunny here in Buffalo. What's the problem?

The streets and trees were clear.  It was warm and melting.  Goddammit! Now everything is covered again.  I hate this.  I farking, farking hate this.  A few more days of this and I'm totally going to snap.  You can get warm and then get covered again.  It's not right.  It's a tease! I need my sun.  I'm drowning in darkness and sticky snow of suck.

Do people actually believe that rat can predict spring? If you plan anything around that you're too stupid to exist.
 
2013-03-25 01:32:22 PM
Maybe he should repeat the same day over again and again until he gets the right weather report and gets the girl to fall in love with him.
 
2013-03-25 01:32:52 PM
If you waited to see if a large rat would come out of its hole on a sunny day to determine what the weather would be a month and a half into the future...
 
2013-03-25 01:33:54 PM
Don't worry. You'll be here biatching about how hot it is before you know it.

Snow after March 15th should be illegal, and that's all there is to it.  If the government can't manage that, I say hang 'em all.  What the hell do we pay taxes for, anyway?  Besides, if we can't manage even average winters in the era of global warming, what the hell is the point then?  I'd burn a pile of tires in my backyard every month if I thought it would stop this shiat from happening, or, god forbid, maybe bring on a winter that wasn't bloody freezing every freaking day for seven full months or more...  This is (southern) Pennsylvania, not freaking' Canada for crissakes!  We're practically Dixie!  Why do we have to live like freakin' eskimos?

Maybe they should ask some other furry mammals...

There is no way this winter is EVER going to end, as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow.  He's got to be stopped. And I've got to stop him.

The rodent has a prediction % better than NFL analyst Todd McShay.
Punxsutawney Phil - 39%
ToddMcShay - 17.4%
The Fat-Rat could be the next NFL  draft analyst

Geez, Phil is just another frustrated weatherman.  Just give him his own gnaw show.
 
2013-03-25 02:24:47 PM
12-18 inches of snow forecast over the next 24 hours.

I never understood the concept of Groundhog Day. If the groundhog sees its shadow, it's sunny; doesn't that mean the sun is out...in Pennsylvania...in early February? To me, that's the sign of an early spring. We've had it the wrong way the whole time.
 
2013-03-25 03:01:24 PM
At least the groundhog doesn't have to learn French in order to mate.
 
2013-03-25 03:19:49 PM
This is what I see in Phil's near future.  He would be more useful this way.

Y'all have got it ALL WRONG! It is ground HUG day.  If you go out of your house and hug the ground and it is hard as a stone or better, if you are instantly frozen to and stick to the ground, then there will be six more weeks of winter.  If the ground is soft and warm and kindof hugs you back then winter is over.  It's simple really.

Even though I would join in on the "whoo hoo, early Spring" cheers, I knew it just meant another bug filled, muggy summer. Thank you Phil for being incorrect!

//hush up complainers, its Spring

When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.

This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather.

It was fine until February 12 when I upgraded from a 250 to a 650.  In just the first three weeks alone after that, my area (east Tennessee) got more forecasts of weather I won't ride in than the whole rest of the winter up to Feb12.  And as if to add insult to injury, most of those threats of bad weather didn't actually happen.
