Happy Holiday (Not Everyone Celebrates Groundhog Day)

Happy Groundhog Day everyone. Let's hope Punxsutawney Phil doesn't come out of his hole, proclaim global warming is going to destroy the world and then die. That would be a great PR move by the libs. They should do that sometime.

Good news:

A new pair of hands pulled Punxsutawney Phil from his stump this year, so it was only fitting that the groundhog offered a new prediction.

Phil did not see his shadow on Friday, which, according to German folklore, means folks can expect an early spring instead of six more weeks of winter.

Since 1886, Phil has seen his shadow 96 times, hasn't seen it 15 times and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The last time Phil failed to see his shadow was in 1999.
