Groundhog Day 2010, Mr. Fill Style

By now we all know that that Punxsutawney dude saw his shadow, dooming us to six more weeks of winter.

But we also all know that we don’t care what he says.  We know the real authority on such manners is actually Phullabaloney Fill, the adoption, weather, and whateverelse predicting groundhog.

So I got him out of bed this morning and reminded him that today is his BIG DAY (since there hasn’t been much adoption predicting to do as of late).  To say he was less than thrilled would be putting it mildly.

He slurred something about the weather forecast and the outdoors not being fit for man nor beast.  Then there was some bellowing about it being to frapping cold, and I couldn’t make him $#%&!  go out.

And then, after actually getting him out of his room . . .

groundhog day 2010
I gave up.

So I guess we’re just going to have to take the word of that other groundhog this year.

And George, if you’re out there, no stuffed groundhogs were hurt in the filming of this post.

  1. Ha ha! My dad is not a member of any church. Years ago his employer used to give managers a bottle of Crown Royal at Christmas, so it’s technically my dad’s empty bottle. I keep it around strictly as a prop for such occasions as this.

  2. Don’t forget to add that your Dad doesn’t drink either. It took over ten years to empty it using it for cough medicine – at least as effective as the alcohol-based stuff you buy at the drug store.

  3. Bwahahahaha!!!! I had a little down time at school so I was checking a few blogs. This just made my day. I think it means Fill didn’t see his shadow….maybe a few stars, but definitely no shadow.

  4. Yes, it was used as cough medicine, but I know a few shots found their way into his coke/pepsi, too over the years. So, yes, my dad doesn’t drink at all any more that I know of, and he didn’t drink much when the Crown Royal was around.

    Oh Phullabaloney, I’ve missed you! Hee, that was a good post. You should drag Mr.Phil out more often, I’m sure we could think of questions to ask him! 🙂

    I agree with Christina. I’d like to ask him if my son will ever be potty trained! (Because right now, it’s feelin’ like a no..)

  7. I will admit that my first thought was, “Where did ELAINE get a bottle of Crown Royal?” But I see you answered that in the comments.

    My son keeps his Bakugan in empty Crown Royal bags that he gets from his grandfather.
