NEW YORK'S #1 OPTIMIST-OUR GROUNDHOG ...STATEN ISLAND CHUCK



New Yorkers are optimists. Despite our grumpy, ‘don’t talk to me before my morning coffee’ demeanors, at the end of the day it will be New Yorkers that see the Stella pint glass half full.

Take our designated groundhog Staten Island Chuck for example. Just this morning -despite contradictory reports from the critically acclaimed groundhog Pennsylvania Phil-(a pampered looking groundhog with a top hated handler) our Staten Island Chuck didn’t see his shadow. This can only mean two things-either (a.) Staten Island Chuck just wanted to free himself from the tight clutches of Mayor Bloomberg’s spooky American Psycho style leather gloves or (b.) spring will be coming early.

I think groundhog Pennsylvania Phil might learn a little something from our Tony Soprano of groundhogs Staten Island Chuck. After all, any New Yorker knows that when asked if we’ve witnessed anything-a murder, a mugging, a spotting of our own shadow…we all say the same thing.

“Me? I ain’t see nuthin’.”

Whoa. Do those things bite? I don't know if I'd hold one, even with gloves on and at arm's length..... 'sides, I suspect that groundhog o' yours is in the waste management business .... probably got a mrs. groundhog back in the 'burbs, just dying to schtupp a ferret. (can you tell I love my Sopranos?)

Here I am in NJ and I never hear about Chuck. He needs a better agent. My 4-year-old came home yesterday able to pronounce "Puxatawny".
That PA rat's gotta be connected.
Your blog is great! Love the soaked bag. That's my life, and kind of what I look like. Thanks for visiting. When I get 10 minutes, I am going to add you to my list.

hey....you may getta kick out of my blog. I kinda went off a little on yesterday's prized vermin. Either way, in 6 weeks, is anyone really gonna be keeping track of what the weather is like. And even if the hog was wrong, what's that obsessive lunatic gonna do about it?
