  1. I think I've spent at least 600 hours either awake or sleeping with groundhog day on repeat throughout the night lol. I don't think I could sit through a new groundhog day movie, however, I do owe Bill Murray at least one viewing, it was a great kid's lesson movie.

  2. 😯… our homeless programs are drastically under funded… but there's money to fund the affluent survival of not only a ground rodent but his octogenarian entourage?..they all, even the garden destroying rodent, stay in a nice hotel and drink expensive alcohol… I never knew the foolishness went this deep 🤔

  3. All you grumpy killjoy people need to lighten up. It's all in fun and the groundhog is well taken care if. Nobody takes the prediction as absolute truth. It's nice to have something lighthearted to watch for a minute.

  4. If a ground hog thought as we do, what would he be thinking? "I get fed great food and am well taken care of, in a cage. I travel the world and meet fans who adore me, in a cage. People make noise and faces at me. They smile and cheer when they see me, in a cage. People pet me and scratch my head. They hold me up in the air and say they love me. They say I am the great prognosticator. I get all these praises, then they put me back, in a cage. People watch me cuddle with my female, in a cage. I know I'm going to die, in a cage. If I ever have a son, people will pretend he is me, and lock him in a cage for his entire life as they are doing with me. If I don't have a son, people will select another lucky Groundhog to replace me, in a cage. They tell everyone that some magic potion keep giving me more life. Why do they do this to me? Why do they do this to us? Ho yea. They do it because they pretend to believe that I can predict how long winter will last if I see my shadow. I don't even know what a shadow is. They do it for their pleasure. They do it to me because I am a marketing tool I think. What's a marketing tool. Do they love me? I don't know. I am safe though. No predators. Don't have to forage for food. Don't have to worry about weather or a place to live. I am cared for. But, am I truly a Groundhog any longer? No. Am I a pet? Yes, and no. I am a slave to their idea. Yes. I know I will never be free. Am I happy about that? I think I'd rather be a Groundhog.

  5. Strike up, the music, the band has begun * dun dun dun dun * the pennsylvaniaaaa polka

    Pick out, your partner, and join in the fun * dun dun dun dun * the pennsylvaniaaaa polka

  6. It’s just like the presidential election- a bunch of white guys in an inner circle excited to make a decision for the indigenous. And they’re thirsty too, like they just downloaded social media. It’s pathetically embarrassing.

  7. I think I met John Griffiths 5 years ago ( in June ) when outside his den at the cute library there.My hubby and I were on vacation in PA and I wanted to see Phil and his family.They had Phil in his big plastic can on the back of a black pick up truck.They were taking him to a school that afternoon.I got my pix taken with him,he was so cute!!!

  8. Stupid stupid stupid very very very twisted how really real world it comes out sonny days warmer day should come out on there own buy them self not people around and lights with it. See sheds of them self around the real world no people around. Stick outside for some time grass what is around eating. Then it is spring around in some time after that. If rain or snow bick out of holl not come out in all. It be some 7 days or more winter with it all. Truthfully storylines shouldn't be twisted around like it is with that animals behavior in the real world with people around and there big lights with it and hand take it out of there slip like this one be done

  12. Good thing PETA is trying to shut this down, look at that poor abused groundhog! …
    cuts to Phil casually laying in the guy's arms like a cat
    "cuts to Phil eating more fruits and veggies than most adults*
    cut to Phil in his house with his lady groundhog

  13. Phil is precious and I really don’t see why people are so mad about it they take care of him they love and respect him and that’s really what it’s about. I think it’s sweet.
