Guest Post by Mr. Pibb

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.
