“It’s Very Scientifically Proven”

February 4th, 2010

Hey, look who’s been reading At Home in Hespeler:

Toronto Sun – Feb 2010:  Don’t shoot the messenger, even if he is a groundhog.

At Home in Hespeler – Feb 2009: … How else to explain taking a bite out of New York Mayor Michael groundhog-aBloomberg at a weather ceremony yesterday. Of course, maybe he’s just sick of everybody blaming the messenger.

At Home in Hespeler March – 2008: Wiartin (HP) – Villagers of this hamlet east of Owen Sound today formed in a mob and marched to the site of locally famous Wiarton Willy. Carrying torches, pitchforks and snow shovels and chanting “kill the rodent”, the villagers came to demand an explanation of the weather from the local weather prognosticator.

At Home in Hespeler – March 2007: You, Mr. Groundhog, have one week to improve things…
or else…

I’m surprised the Mounties aren’t at my door. |

Since I’ve started this blog I have covered Groundhog/Prairie Dog day every year and the damn rodents have never been right when calling for an early spring. So this line surprised me:

Don’t blame the messenger. It’s very scientifically proven — and that’s just a fact of life

Who settled this science? The IPCC? Were groundhogs mentioned in the East Anglia emails?
