feb 2 - groundhog day

with it being groundhog day and all, i couldn't help in honor of that stupid groundhog, puxatawney phil, i give you...

Phil: There is no way this winter is *ever* going to end as long as that groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don't see any way out of it. He's got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.

Phil: This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather.

Phil: What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?
Ralph: That about sums it up for me.

Phil: You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.

Phil: Do you know what today is?
Rita: No, what?
Phil: Today is tomorrow. It happened.

i really don't understand what a little groundhog has to do with predicting the weather. i'm feeling a little tired right now, so i did a quick google search and i found this...which was a bit ridiculous.

so after reading the "statement" made by phil himself, i'm still a little confused. so we have a talking groundhog who said "happy groundhog day" to all those watching. then he continues to speak in groundhogese using words like "prognosticate." wow. and all those years growing up, i had no idea.
