What's wrong with this picture?

A bunch of fat, old, white guys... Dressed up in top hats... Harassing a freakin' ground hog in the dead of winter... To find out if it will be an early or late spring this year?
At what point is the church going to take this pagan ritual and turn it into a Christian Holiday? I mean, they did it with Christmas trees and the Easter bunny. I'm sure they could come up with something... Like, this is the day that Christ spoke to the ground hogs and designated them as holy animals that foretold the upcoming Mardi Gras festivals and the following Lent season.
Probably, the Pope won't make it a full Day of Obligation... Maybe not even a Day of Consideration... But, I think it is at least worthy of a Day of Suggestion.
As long as we decide that February 2 needs to be a federal holiday and I don't have to work, I'm fine with it!

Speaking of federal holidays, when is the Super Bowl going to be made a national holiday? I mean, seriously. I think more people in the U.S. celebrate during the Super Bowl than Christmas. There is nothing worse than trying to party on a Sunday evening and knowing that you have to get up early and work on Monday morning.
I'm voting for the next president based on who is willing to make Super Bowl weekend and full three days long!

You know, I think a great flavor for a drink would be: Violet Lemonade. It would have a lemon and blueberry mix. Maybe a little cherry mixed in. Violet Lemonade -- available at your local grocer.

I once got bit by a prairie dog. But I should point out that prairie dogs are different than ground hogs.

I agree with the 3 day holiday for Super Bowl or why not make it Super Bowl Saturday? or make the game start at 1:00 instead of 5:30?

Tug said...

Maybe that's why the groundhog (not EVEN trying to spell it) has lied, like, forever?? He's PISSED.

Yeah, him. said...

That's my state celebrating Groundhog's Day... the Pennsyltucky part of the state that is... we rock.

90million households with tvs watched the superbowl last year. why make the day itself a holiday... make the day after it a holiday (or at least a half day) for recovery principle.

have a good 1.

Seems to me that the Super Bowl gets about as much consideration, holidaywise, as Easter. It's on a Sunday. There is a party with food and booze. Then I have to go to work on Monday.

Mishka said...

My friend was just saying that the Superbowl should be on Saturday...doesn't that make more sense?

rosemary said...

Actually the whole month of February should be a holiday...why there is GHD, Valentines Day, Presidents day, and a whole bunch of other days that could just meld into Super Bowl February!!

GO GO GO!! You go girl! That was a great post. It reminded me that I still want a Pope Mobile.

I think the Pope (why am I capitalizing it, I'm not Cahotlic!) should drive one of those gyroscope two-wheeled things...

The CETPD cracked me up. Prairie dogs have rights too!
