A Fatwa On Punxsutawney Phil 2.0

Just two days ago I was advocating the death penalty for a certain rodent meteorologist...

This evening, I see on the local news we can expect another 6-10 inches of global warming tomorrow and Wednesday. (Allow me to point out that these same folks told us to expect 8-13 inches this past weekend. The total snowfall actually exceeded over twenty inches. Hope there's not a pattern I should be aware of...)

Anyway, in my last post about good ol' Phil, I said that every year someone or other tries to drag me to this rat-watching event. For fun. Riiight. Because standing outside in Pennsylvania at 4am in February is fun.

Next year, I'm going.

Oh-ho-ho, yes... I'm going.

Here's Phil in all his fat, furry glory. Take a good look. Good enough to last ya.

You see, I'm upset. I hold ol' fat Phil accountable for this "Snowmageddon" experience.

I've been plotting, and planning... and Googling.

And I've found a recipe for Groundhog Pot Roast.

Gonna fix ol' Phil, so I am.

With biscuits.

I don't think you can be charged in any way for plotting the demise of a groundhog.

Just don't end up like this...

Dude...sweet . Groundhog Stew. That's what I'm talking about.

One of the only college experiences in which I never participated at Penn State was the annual trek to Punxsutawney. I just couldn't for the life of me understand the appeal. And you know me, I'm pretty much up for drinking anywhere .

I'm predicting another 14 here in Jersey. Thanks Phil!

A fatwa on a fat rodent? But he looks just like Dave Letterman in his youth.
