More Groundhog Day Lore
Limerick contest winners, a local groundhog alternative, and more.
I'll get back to politics and government (mostly) after today. Coming soon: My plan for the $1.6 billion State of Utah budget surplus. Meanwhile . . .
Here are a few more Groundhog Day morsels to amuse and bemuse you:
- 2007 LocalCommentary.com Groundhog Day Limerick Contest winners and their winning verse. (All other entries are published here.)
- Here is the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club's official Web site, with its official report of Phil's official prediction.
- Sunset, Utah, has a guinea pig that is trying to be a groundhog. She's Sunset Sam (short for Samantha), and she's less bold and more pretentious. Here is an AP story from yesterday and a Deseret News story from last year by Joseph M. Dougherty.
- Finally, a combined public service announcement and commercial message: another chance to get that Bill Murray movie for next year (or later this year) without leaving the comfort of your Web-enabled home.
Happy Groundhog Day!
