Sign O' The Times

Gateway Pundit has a pretty "cool" contest going...

Details are at the link, but basically you need a funny sign about global warming, and you need to get it on TV. Sounds simple, right?

Not if you live where I live - which is Nowhere. We don't get news vans running around here, like they do in areas of bigger (or more interesting) population. I'll try to give you an idea about news coverage in my area...

You know how every local news outlet has their D-listers? You know the ones I mean... the newslady who's a little too chubby, the guy with the minor speech impediment or facial tic... The poor deluded souls who haven't yet realized they'll never make network and who are constantly sent to cover the stories the more glamorous reporters won't touch. The ones who end up galoshes-deep in slime if there's a sewer break to cover, or who are sent to report from the side of the interstate during a sleet storm. (Heh. The sewer break thing actually happened to our slightly-too-chunky newslady once.)

Anyway, those are the only reporters you catch in my neighborhood, and even that is a rarity. So the odds of my picture making TV are pretty slim indeed. But that's OK. I'm gonna keep it out there on the off-chance they wonder about us out here in Nowhere and send out a satellite truck or chubby, tic-infested reporter.

My fellow blogger TChristopher is expecting a sign (and yours truly) in Punxsutawney. I'll have to disappoint. The PENNDOT trucks have made it impossible to leave my driveway, let alone make it to my least-favorite overgrown rat.
But it happier news, Russ at That's Right (who, incidentally has some pretty cool snow photos up, taken at different points in this past storm) has found Al Gore - buried in a snow bank in Jersey. Maybe we can get him to explain how AGW caused Snowmageddon...
Go check out Russ's photographic evidence of the man-bear-pig in the Jersey snow, and then tell me people don't sometimes share a mental wave-length. I actually had my sign and plan ready last night, and all I had to do this morning was head outside with it:

Like I said, odds of this hitting a newscast are about... well... about a snowball's chance in global warming. But if you do see this one on TV, it's MINE! Email and let me know so I can collect my money!

I like it. A little disappointed that there's not a dead groundhog involved but there's always the next storm.

NEXT storm?!?

Hush yo mouth! I'm not out from under this one!

Every storm just keep the groundhog alive a bit longer. Perhaps the evil critter is working in concert with PENNDOT? Just imagine, the groundhog does his thing, and PENNDOT can argue for budget increases. They know you're onto the whole thing, so they plow you in. IT'S A CONSPIRACY!!
