Punxsutawney Phil Makes a Prediction

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) — Punxsutawney Phil, perhaps the world’s most famous forecaster this side of Al Roker, certainly threw revelers in this tiny Pennsylvania town a “curve ball” this morning.

At approximately 7:25 a.m., for the 125th consecutive year, Phil emerged. For the first time, however, there was no shadow at play.  

Instead, the furry legend confidently scurried to the forefront, stood stoically for a longer-than-brief moment, and proclaimed, “CLIFF [expletive deleted] LEE!”, while casting a glorious, silhouetted letter P onto the snow-covered mound.

Members of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club's Inner Circle were initially taken aback, but then cheered and hollered like a bunch of dorks in top hats and sashes.




  1. Nobody can draw an mspaint groundhog quite like ZWR can!

  2. Awesome! I'm writing a press release for my internship at this moment.
