In lieu of my post a week or so ago, I found this extremely funny and although a spoof, I fully agree and want to hunt the little *$#Y$;*~ down AND KILL HIM WITH A STICK!!! Below is an article I loved on AOL Skype this morning...

Ohio Prosecutor Seeks Death Penalty for Famous Groundhog...
Six weeks after weather-predicting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil signaled that spring would arrive early, much of the country remains in the throes of winter, with more storms on the way.
Yes, Phil blew his big forecast - big time.
On March 21, the county's prosecuting attorney Michael Gmoser indicted the groundhog, alleging that Phil "did purposely, and with prior calculation and design, cause the people to believe that spring would come early."
The indictment continues:
Contrary to the Groundhog Day report, a snowstorm and record low temperatures have been and are predicted to continue in the near future, which constitutes the offense of MISREPRESENTATION OF EARLY SPRING.
The humorous newspaper "The Onion" even got in on the action, publishing a story on March 18 entitled, "Punxsutawney Phil Beheaded for Inaccurate Prediction on Annual Groundhog Slaughtering Day."
So, does Gmoser really want to see Phil pay the ultimate price for his failed forecast?
Not exactly. Regarding any potential litigation, the prosecutor told The Washington Post, "I hope everyone understands it's tongue-in-cheek..."
At least we can read this and laugh...in spite of the next nasty storm that is forcast for this coming weekend.
Will it never end????????????
