Groundhog Day?

Maybe not. In an untimely turn of events, Punxsutawney Phil has been struck and killed by a passing motorist, as he was preparing for his annual forecast.

Anyone with information regarding the identity and/or whereabouts of this individual, who is wanted for questioning regarding the incident, is asked to contact the Punxsutawney authorities. He was last seen speeding away on a red, late model Harley-Davidson, reportedly with a PA license plate.

Meteorologists worldwide are stunned, shocked and dismayed.

One thing is fairly certain, however; the first day of Spring will occur in roughly 7 weeks.

This reporter would like to assist in the manhunt, but needs to wash his motorcycle...

Nothing ickier than trying to get dried roadkill off of nice paint....and the fur in those little spoke dealies on the wheels...you better get after it while it's still fresh!

Roadkill? What roadkill?! I just got this sudden urge to wash my Harley...in February. Yeah, that's the ticket. Unusual, I know...

umm, camojack, you better look again, you killed Punxsutawney Phyllis, unless Phil got a breast enhancement

ms. rightwing, perhaps Phil is in the middle of a sex-change operation! :-D

OK, not only are the local authorities on the hunt for the perp, but I'm now looking up the number for PETA!!! It's not an accident if you "aim" for the little critter! The blood is on your "wheels," Mr. Funny Man! ;-)

I tried three times to post a picture with an HTML link.

Hey! Go look here at for another take on rodents who think they know it all.

"General Lee" [the Southern rodent] says Puxy Phil is wrong; only a couple of weeks of mild winter.

As always the movie critic, I'm amazed that not one of my satellite channels didn't offer Bill Murray's excellent "Groundhog Day" as couch-vegetable fare for this cold day.

The picture is for my pal Jack. Chase the link herein for commentary.

It said Pa law says you can hunt with Rifles or Archery, nothing about Motorcycles. Hey, buddy ,ya got a liscense?

And you don't think I read the blogs of others! Lack of commentary should never imply lack of attention.

Boy! That turned into a long link to not much at all!

I heard you only get 15 points for a groundhog. If you wipe out a grizzly with a motorcycle you're up to 100 points easy... and you get to enter the bonus round (assuming you live)

Hey buddy,

You gonna eat that...?

From the website you linked-
No closed season


A recipe for Groundhog Stew?

Nah, I'm tryin' to quit, but thanks.

Yeah...what you said.

Trotting Possum:
You mean THIS picture?!

I've got a license, all right...for riding motorcycles.

Groundhogs are too easy; 5 points tops.

See my response to Maggie...

My guess for the murderer of Phil would be either Jimmy Dean or Bob Evans.

Don't they both make their sausage from ground hog?

I was wondering if anyone was going to put that "ground hog" thing together. Thank you...

I thought he was killed by Bill Murray as a passenger in a fiery truck crash! Could there be more than one of these large rats with the same name?

I think they've got a bunch of "Punxsutawney Phils" on hand; apparently they found a replacement, right quick...

SGT USMC 1ea, I was more concerned with that nice looking old Chevy truck Murray destroyed than I was the groundhog!

Sorry PETA!----well,---not really! lol

Chris Elliot's line, "He might be alright. (Then the truck explodes),----well, probably not now!" was pretty funny.

With a handle like that, shouldn't you be a Dodge fan?
(Yes, I know it's a acronym, and what it stands for)

Anyway, yes, who cares about an overgrown rodent?!

Would that PA license plate come back to southeastern PA?

My neighbors redHarley Lectric-Guild never left his yard all weekend---his license plate, if any, says LA, not PA.---sort of rules him out.

2nd opinion:
Since Ted K saw his shadow, does this mean his retirement is just around the corner, or are we suck with 6 more years of his rhetoric?

I'm just reporting what I heard. But that so-called "Punxsutawney Phil" was a ringer, I'm telling ya!

Hmmm...maybe it WAS a "LA" plate instead. This changes EVERYTHING!!!

Anyway, Groundhog Day was last Thursday.
(Maybe your neighbor was back by then...)
