I Hate Groundhogs
By Kickntrue on 2/2/10
As a native Pennsylvanian there are two days a year that are more special to me than any other, one of them is today, Groundhog Day (I'm not going to tell you the other... you'll just have to wait until it comes). Each year in Gobbler's Knob (yah, seriously... we also have an Intercourse, Paradise and Blue Ball), Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil decides if winter is soon over or if we'll have to endure 6 more weeks of winter.
Well... screw you groundhog! This is the 3rd or 4th year in a row you've SUCKED!! In fact- 99 times Phil has seen his shadow, while just 15 times he hasn't. The ironic part about the whole thing is that a nice sunny warm day on February 2nd means more winter. I think it's rigged!
On another note, is there a more useless creature than a groundhog? Cool animals like a T-Rex or Triceratops are extinct while we still have to endure groundhogs?! Evolution just ain't fair. On the flip side- groundhogs do serve one great purpose... target practice. Every time I go home I inevitably end up driving around my parents acreage on their golf cart with a .22 looking for groundhogs to pop.

Very well put! LOL
Cloudy and rainy on Monday and Wednesday with sunshine on Groundhogs day betwixt the two... Smacks of conspiracy!!
The second day would most likely be the start of hunting season? Gathering from your wanting to shoot something comments. Also I get the image of Bill Murray in caddieshack driving around in a golf cart looking for gophers. Also the movie Groundhog Day comes to mind. Now I'll have to go watch them both!
Your comments will piss of the PETA folks Keep up the good work!

Around these parts, only six more weeks of winter is good news.
I actually hit and killed a ground hog with a 5 iron lay-up shot last year. Got it square in the face on the fly and killed it instantly. I considered it a victory for golfers everywhere. I wonder if I shouldn't have had it skinned and turned into a head cover for that iron...
Agree with all but what a GREAT movie Groundhog Day is!!! Classic!!!
Wouldnt all the cameras and lights create a shadow for him to 'see'?? And why is it that big of a deal? Cold sucks, and its staying, for a while, I hope...
