Death for Groundhog?

Not sure if this is a joke or not, but some people in Ohio are taking Punxsutawney Phil’s spring prediction a little too seriously. Because the furry guy predicted an early spring, and it is now snowing, there is a cry of outrage coming from Cincinnati. Mike Gmoser wrote an “official looking” indictment accusing Phil of wrongly predicting the weather. Phil will apparently be charged with “misrepresentation of spring, which constitutes a felony.”

It’s an interesting joke or play on the situation, however, that is a lot of time and effort spent blaming an animal for seeing his shadow. The punishment is death? People are worried for his safety? Bill Deely, president of the Punxsutawney Club, thinks the allegations are “very harsh.” I think so too! Poor little guy might suffer because the planet can’t get it’s climate under control, hence snow at the end of March.

    So Why? ok then we should have any weather forecasters either! They ALL would have been killed off by now and NO ONE would ever train for that job(since the would just be killed for a missed forecast anyway) Oh BTW he is a GROUNDHOG!
