Goundhog Day: Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Six More Weeks of Winter: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Pennsylvania`s most famous animal celebrity, Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog, emerged from hibernation into the glare of hundreds of cameras and promptly died of a heart attack.


Just kidding! Actually he saw his shadow, indicating six more weeks of winter. This has been one of the harshest winters on record, what with the Polar Vortex and two inches of snow turning Atlanta into an apocalyptic nightmare, so I hope Phil`s prediction is bogus.  

Last year when Phil flubbed his prediction he got several death threats, let`s hope he has 24/7 protection.

Pandas, crocodiles, gorillas and other members of the animal kingdom have predicted the Super Bowl winner, but Phil didn`t go there.

Phil you are such a cute devil, your real fans will love you even if you suck as a meteorologist.
