Charges Against Punxsutawney Phil Dropped
Sick of winter dragging on? Don’t blame Punxsutawney Phil. Blame his handler.
Now Gmoser has dimissed those charges. Gmoser says Phil’s handler misinterpreted his forecast.
Here is the “Memorandum in Support”:
“No one should consider this case all that unusual. After all, the majority in the U.S. Senate is represented by a donkey, the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives is represented by an elephant and there is a lame duck in the White House planning to turn loose an Easter Bunny on the White House lawn. Now as it turns out, Punxsutawney Phil is little more than a scapegoat for the misinterpretation of his handler and the dismissal is thereby appropriate. And for all who took this case too seriously and were told this case was tongue-in-cheek, those are not body parts of a groundhog for a stew. In these serious times, I hope this case brought a light-hearted moment to all concerned with a warm welcome to Spring ahead.”
