Guest Post by Mr. Pibb

2 02 2012

My name is Mr. Pibb and as you may have surmised from my photo, I’m a groundhog.  As today is Groundhog Day, I’ve been afforded the opportunity to speak my mind in this guest post by the esteemed cat, Gary, who lives in a house on my property.

I have been delegated by my fellow groundhogs (also known as woodchucks and whistle-pigs) to say that Groundhog Day is preposterous. It’s an insult to groundhogs everywhere, to whom every day is groundhog day.  Like a lot of human intrusions in the animal world, Groundhog Day is an invasion of privacy.  Were I an attorney, I’m sure I could come up with a list of charges against those who so brazenly force groundhogs to participate in such mockery.  But I’m not an attorney — and I’m not a weather forecaster either, and neither are my fellow groundhogs.  I declare that it is time to bring this farce to an end.

That’s all I have to say.  Thank you Gary for allowing me a forum to speak my mind.  I’m going back into my burrow now.  Enjoy the rest of the winter…all six weeks of it.

Hey Birgit, it’s Gary. Yes, we’re all very proud of Mr. Pibb around here. There are actually loads of groundhogs on our property, along with rabbits, deer, muskrats, squirrels, skunks, more bird varieties than I can count, and of course our beloved ducks. Never a dull moment!

Groundhogs Unite!
(then you can bring a class-action law suit against human intruders)

Hi Peggy, Gary here… Don’t give Mr. Pibb any ideas. He’s quite the community organizer.

Chiming in a couple of days late, but I agree with you, Mr. Pibb. Groundhogs are are busy doing groundhog activities. If someone wants help with weather predictions, they need to consult a meteorologist, not a groundhog. And thanks to Gary for sharing his forum for your remarks.
