It's officially Groundhog Day ... after an entire year that felt like Groundhog Day.
By now, we all know that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, and we know what that means, eh? Another six weeks of winter, according to some small mammal we didn't even get to elect (seriously, in this democracy?), but who I'm not sure got to volunteer, either. If I were dragged out of my warm den into the snow by a bunch of Lincoln cosplayers and asked if there were going to be six weeks of winter or spring, you can bet your ass I'd say winter. I hope Phil can parlay this into a cozy burrow influencer career or something once he retires from soothsaying. Knock yourself out, Buddy. And thanks for the tweets!
wow how is this actually so much weirder than i ever could’ve imagined https://t.co/w6NN0gjf57— Alex Friedman (@kosherhotdogz) February 2, 2021
WATCH THIS. I can't decide if I'm delighted or horrified, and Alex Friedman's reaction is honestly an understatement.
why does the groundhog get to go outside but i don't— Jill Gutowitz (@jillboard) February 2, 2021
Justice for Jill Gutowitz.
The Onion has the honest journalism we need.
every part of the groundhog is its ass— Patricia Lockwood (@TriciaLockwood) February 2, 2021
Just a little science to class this joint up.

Groundhog's Day is a Hallmark movie for dudes.— Ricki Tomisaburō Wakayama Tarr (@ShootyDoody) February 2, 2021
I can't explain it, but she's right.
I’ll not be watching the movie Groundhog Day today, having actually lived it the last 11 months.— Darlin’ Darla (@Darlainky) February 2, 2021
Darla speaks for all of us. Over and out.
