Wiilie says six more weeks of winter

Canada's most famous weather forecasting rodent has some disappointing news for those who've had enough of winter. Wiarton Willie saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter.

This whole thing annoys me. Not only does it annoy me this year, but EVERY year that the news anchors have to tell us whether or not Wiarton Wilie saw his shadow.

I DON'T CARE IF HE DID. I don't care if he didn't. I just don't want to hear about it, year after year.

Imagine how old it gets when you're about 80. You've heard the same old story about a stupid groundhog coming out of his den to 1. be scared by his shadow OR 2. Not be scared. Either way, there's six more weeks of winter to look forward to. But, if you're 80, you've endured the same old story time and time again. And you're old, and you're NOT HAPPY.

When I'm 80, those of you that love me and don't want me to spend the rest of my life in jail should distract me for the day. Take me shopping. Feed me lunch in a restaurant somewhere.

Just don't take me to Wiarton.


  1. Agreed! It's such a stupid pointless holiday. Just an excuse for Wiarton residents to get drunk and take the day off work. Blech.

  2. :D

    I think it's funny. ;) And Groundhog Day is one of my favourite movies. :P
