if the fish don't know, the groundhog will?

so it's official:
Phil Says Six More Weeks of Winter!
Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/06 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob

here's a bunch of silly looking men:

for some reason they remind me of The Napoleon of Notting Hill

(oh and about jenn see seeing her shadow - when a marmalade fetcher sees her shadow in february, and depending on the amount of spunk inherent in the fetcher - this one is near to bursting - it means that there will be intermittent rains of fish sandwiches as well as six more weeks of 'blue mountain spotting' - they float through the clouds, you know)

13 little fish:

by the by, the Staten Island groundhog is engaged in a meteorological debate with Mr. Official Groundhog:

"Charles G. Hogg the 6th, better known as Staten Island Chuck, has rendered his verdict.

During a festive debut at the Staten Island Zoo in West Brighton this morning, Chuck emerged from a hollow tree stump -- with a little nudging from his handler Doug Schwartz -- at around 7:30 a.m. and gave the people what they wanted: The prediction of an early spring."


yep, no shadow here in 60-degree land.

is it just me or does it look like phil is ripping his way to freedom out of the chest of the man front and center of this picture?

by the way, jenn, there are many imposter - of course chuck didn't see his shadow - he is a shadow...

Rats, I just left a message and it got lost in translation, by confounded Blogger once again. Maybe it'll reappear. I'll try to re-do it now, in the abridged format:

--I'm going with Chuck on this one.
--Point: Phil has become a tool of the Bush adminstration, always predicting the worst, to pacify the populace, and cow us into submission.
--We need to rescue Phil from these Plutocratic Pigs!!!

Nope, make that "to cow."

I gotta stop drinking on an empty stomach after work.
