The world’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring ten days ago. Mother Nature had different ideas as it turned out. We have had three named winter storms in Kade, Lamont, and Mabel. We also had a severe weather outbreak last weekend with another midweek.
The host of his own talk show, Maury Povich would kindly ask the groundhog, “Did you predict an early spring so that you could make a complete idiot of yourself”? Phil would reply, “No way”!
The lie detector test would determine, “That was a lie. You did it twenty times before”. Phil would confess, “I lied and I do not care”.
Yeah – I too, have often said – you can never trust a groundhog. They avoid eye contact – a sure sign of dishonestly. I’ve also heard a rumor that he flunked out of meteorology school for heavy partying!
