Groundhog Day Is Ridiculous!

Updated on January 31, 2013

Here's What I Think

Groundhog Day Is Ridiculous!

Are we really all that shocked that a RODENT (one who's job it is to burrow under our houses and mess with our foundations) tells us at the beginning of FEBRUARY that winter is going to stick around for six weeks? COME ON!

I mean, I'm all for doing the Groundhog's Day crafts for the kiddos - that's fine with me. But it seems like there's a whole lot of hullaballoo over nothing.

Seriously, the darn thing has a whole lot of cameras and people stuck in its face, where it's yanked out of its hole (den?), and a bunch of lights shining on the thing. Of COURSE it's going to get scared!

And ANOTHER thing. If we're going to depend on an animal to predict something as ridiculous as whether the winter weather might actually last until March, why wouldn't we ask a somewhat more intelligent animal? Like, oh I don't know.....a Monkey? Or a dog? Or even a potbellied pig?

Groundhog's Day Is Ridiculous!

2010 "Prediction" - February 2, 2010

Okay, it's hilarious that they had Bill Murray there. And this is entertaining to watch. But really?

Don't even get me started on the movie....

Groundhog Day (15th Anniversary  Edition) [Blu-ray]
Groundhog Day (15th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]

Definitely not one of my favorites. A lot of people seem to like it, which I just don't even get!

      This was fun! It's tradition, though, so I don't see it stopping any time soon.
