Ever the intrepid …something-or-others… PETA has stated that Punxsutawney Phil should be replaced with a robot. I’m not sure if I should be impressed with the implication that they think Groundhog’s Day is a crock (unless they just think a computer program would be more accurate, or something) or slightly annoyed that they are once again bitching about a non-issue because it happens to be relevant right now. Besides,
William Deeley, president of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, says the animal is “being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania.”
I’m not sure if that says something good about the treatment of the animal or something really bad about the treatment of children in Pennsylvania.
Anyway, if that robot became self-aware and took over mankind, boy would their faces be red. Think, people!
