You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.

"Seeing Chuck is on my bucket list," she said.

That, however, just might be euphemism material

Nah, pretty sure de Blasio is just NYC's curse.

If I was one of the people that does a groundhog event Id invite Bill Murray as my celebrity groundhog handler.

Accuweather's been saying this for a week now. No spring till mid march. At least for the northeast.

I always feel the need to drop a groundhog after my first cup of morning coffee.

I was surprised at how many of the comments in that article reference the mayor eating pizza with a fork.

Well he more jumped than was dropped. Thought it was funny that the woman didn't have to wear gloves to hold him, but the pussy mayor did.

"But my hands are delicate and valuable! Hers aren't!"

In the fifth picture, towards the top right, there's a spot that's not taken up by corporate advertising...

I think it's to protect the groundhog from politician cooties.

I dropped a deuce this morning that cursed a three-block radius.

Oh, you meant curse as in magic, not curse as in denunciation.


Shame, would have been far more interesting that way.

Blotter as in Hawkwind era. If that needs explaining I can recommend a historical expert,

It happens.  It's a cantankerous farking rodent.  It would have been newsworthy if he had actually drop-kicked the thing...

A groundhog is a rodent. Do you know how many diseases and parasites friggen rodents carry? Bubonic plague, hanta virus, fleas, ticks, lice, and a whole host of other lovely things.
 
2014-02-02 03:53:09 PM
That's one big fookin groundhog.

It seemed to handle itself well, and just jumped out of doofus' grasp instead of biting his face to make him let go.
 
2014-02-02 03:57:03 PM
Also, may I just say how irritating the whole top-hat-and-circus-ringmaster getup is for asking an uncooperative woodland creature to tell you whether it's cloudy?

I'd take him, so long he isnt a socialist like the one we got instead.

another NYC fail.

De Blasio is so far left that I'm surprised he didn't kowtow to the animal rights activists and ban live groundhog harrassment. He's the guy who wants to end the horsies in Central Park, after all.

The groundhog predicts that we will either have 6 more weeks of Winter, or that Spring is a mere 6 weeks away.  I forget which is which.

It is considered pretty terrible manners. It's equivalent to the Mayor of Chicago whipping out out and sticking his dick in a deep dish pie.

That would be a prairie dog, wrong rodent.

Chiming in from Austin, Texas, we have Bee Cave Bob today, Armadillo Day, to predict the future winter of our discontent [WestPole].

So did the Republican mayoral candidate. What's your point again?

To be fair, there's really no holiday diversion for people until St Patrick's Day. Start and end of winter have something but the middle is one mindless empty uneventful crawl. So I'm not surprised they try and sell today.

Upon reading the headline, I thought he had said, "Fark this stupid country and it's stupid traditions," or something. Leaving disappointed.

Punxsatawney Phil says "six more weeks of winter".

General Beauregard Lee says "Not for Atlanta!"

Staten Island Chuck goes "Fark this shiat, I'm outta here!"

My local groundhogs (within a quarter mile of the house in their nice, natural surroundings) would go "You want me to go out in what, considering the weather forecast?  Are you farking out of your goddamn skull?  Now go merrily cross the four-lane highway in a game of Hide And Go Fark Yourself while I go back in my nice hole"...if they weren't being sensible little field marmots and sleeping away the rather-more-snowy-and-cold-than-has-been-usual winter with a large sign saying "Go fark yourself until it is at LEAST Girl Scout cookie season".

Germany sits back and laughs at why we're using overgrown marmots to forecast the weather instead of the Proper and Traditional, which is to dig up one of the local tiny, prickly porcupine-analogues and annoy it.  (Of course, nowadays they can just buy the small, prickly porcupine-analogues from a UK pet store, as for some reason the British seem to love the things as companion animals.  I prefer rats, as rats are smart and friendly and not nearly as prickly. :D)

Canada points out that the local hedgehog analogue WAS tried out in a field trial by Pennsylvania Dutch around 1678 (in an incident that, to this day, is still generally regarded as a bit of fail) and the decision was made to go to woodchucks as at least THOSE were considerably less pointy when handled.

The Aymara First Nation is giving the American tourists quizzical looks as they desperately try to annoy the local guinea pigs.

/srsly, guys, leave the woodchucks alone
//and porcupines ARE seriously cute.  If very, very prickly to the point gloves are necessary to pet well-socialised ones
///does not generally recommend keeping any rodent more wild than a chinchilla or a degu as a companion critter, and tends to recommend ratties and guinea pigs (which actually do have some fairly extensive history of domestication, especially in the case of guinea pigs)

What the fark is a Staten Island Chuck?

fark off, New York. It's Punxatawney Phil who is the world's premire prognosticator. All you've got is a rat.
 
2014-02-02 06:41:05 PM
Oh, noes! Dropping the Groundhog means six more weeks of Al Gore and the Vortex!

It's the Al Gore-Tex!

Can't we have a god damned thing without a corporate sponsor?

We're two years away from having a Pepsi banner behind the mall santa
