It’s 5:00 Somewhere

A great question was raised this morning in light of the current snow globe atmosphere slamming the Great Lakes region, including my own back yard.

Is this Phil’s fault? Or is it the fault of those maskless capitalist Republicans at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania?

If you missed the moment on Tuesday celebrating Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of six more weeks of winter, here’s a glimpse of the sadistic glee.

Groundhogs, also known as woodchucks, are herbivorous, hungry rodents who spend the warm months eating about a pound of food per sitting. In the winter, they hibernate until about February when males start thinking about their prospective female friends with benefits.

One of my own, home-grown groundhogs enjoying my wildflowers.

I’m missing the point of reminding those of us who suffer through hard winters that we will have six more weeks of winter. I’m sure Phil would rather seek female companionship instead of shadows, just as I would prefer a picnic in the warm sun, with a refreshing 5:00 cocktail.

Speaking of picnics in the sun, I found this guy on his own YouTube channel. For your entertainment, meet Chunk The Groundhog.

Cheers to welcoming spring in six weeks, cheers to that furry blubberball Phil, who so congenially entertained his maskless handlers for the nonsense they promote, and cheers to friends at NewsViews.

Happy Friday, it’s 5:00 somewhere!
