This just ain't fair
« on: March 23, 2013, 12:38:41 PM »
Some prosecutor in Ohio has indicted Punxsutawney Phil. The furry rodent has been charged with misrepresentation of spring, a felony “against the peace and dignity of the state of Ohio,” wrote prosecutor Mike Gmoser in an official-looking indictment causing pain and discomfort.

No mention was made of the co-conspirator, Buckeye Chuck, who came out with the same prediction.

Are the good folks of PA going to take this sitting down?  If Phil is sentenced should not Chuck join him in the dock?

I feel that if Puxy Phil is charged, so should most of the weather forecasters in the country.

They should have taken note of when the red red robin comes bob bob boben along .

Now if fat Phil wasn't all cooped up in his palace in Pa he would have taken a midwinter stroll and checked out were his potential girl friends were taking their winter naps .Then were he smart the rascal could have awakened before his brethren and romanced them all .That deal is if you snooze you loose .

If old Phil was tardy in his appointed rounds all he would get is a good bite on the nose for his slothfullness.

Is there no justice  ???  When you spend your entire life and the only exercise that you get is jumping to conclusions and flying off of the handle somebody is to blame and must pay.  We could take the fine money and pay off the national debt.   ;D

It occurs to me that if Phil is only correct 39% of the time, they may be looking at this thing backwards.  Maybe seeing his shadow means the opposite of what they think it means, and he is actually right 61% of the time.  The problem seems to be more in the interpretation of the data than with the data itself.  As is often the case, such lapses in judgement are frequently caused by a lack of grits in the diet.

Hmm well I never looked at it that way but you might be onto something .Now the big question is how does one doctor up grits to not taste like grits ?

What would happen if you fried them up with some nice crisp bacon to camouflage the taste ?

What taste? Al, are you implying that grits taste like something? :D

I've had them twice- both times while visiting my best friend in Gulfport Ms.

Gr..s taste like whatever you SMOTHER them with to hide the tastelessness. :D

Well nephew really in all fairness to our southern brethren I think grits are something you just about  have to be raised on to appreciate them .To me they are akin to hominy or white rice which for all intents have no taste unless you doctor them up .

We yankees seem to have acquired a taste for fried taters instead of something made of corn save whiskey. Now for some reason somebody got the bright idea to make moonshine to run the automobiles on out of it .I can't help but wonder if that will drive price of grits up in the near future . That would cause much weeping and gnashing of teeth no doubt . :D

Now that you mention it Al, frying is the perfect and preferred way to prepare leftover grits.  When cold, grits are easily cut into chunks or strips which can be breaded and fried just like a piece of meat.  Fried grits go particularly well with grilled groundhog. ;D

Stefan, the Phil in question is Punxatawnee Phil, the groundhog they use to predict the weather up there in Pennsylvania.  They trot him out about six weeks before the end of Winter to determine if we are going to have six more weeks of winter.  Always seemed like an exercise in futility to me. ::)  It must get awfully boring up there amongst all that snow. :D :D

Oh that was NB Phil not Pa. Phil .NB Phil was probabley out scouting out the ladies and kinda lost his head for a moment and some log truck came around and flatten him like a pancake .No grits for poor old Phil of the frozen tundra .Now all he is would be a kind of a furry frisbee no doubt .
