My morning went a little something like this:
Me: Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning.
Nick: Who the hell is Punxsutawney Phil???
Me: The official groundhog of Groundhog Day! :)
I was wondering if that is who you were talking about.
Didn’t know he had an actual “name”.
Now I’m wondering what crack-head named the poor guy!
Me: Punxsutawney is the name of the town, Phil is the name of the groundhog. ’Cept he’s called “Punxsutawney Phil” so nobody confuses him with any of the other groundhogs. ;)
Nick: All of the other groundhogs???
How many other groundhogs participate in this event?
Are they Union Groundhogs?
Has there ever been a groundhog labor dispute?
Did they have to bring in non-union groundhogs to pull off Groundhog Day?
What would groundhog picket signs look like?
“USE UNION SHADOWS!!!”
“WOULD YOU TRUST YOUR SPRING TO A SCAB SHADOW?!?”
“MORE PAY FOR BETTER SHADOWS!!!”
How much does a Union groundhog have to pay in dues?
Do they have a Local?
United Brotherhood of Groundhogs and Shadow Casters.
So…. are they all named Phil?
Don’t trust your Spring to a scab shadow!
