Groundhog sued by lawyer Mar. 22nd, 2013 @ 10:56 PM Reply

This dirty little bastard thought he could mislead the whole country by saying there was going to be an early spring. Well, no one can stand for that! Thankfully, a dutiful lawyer has risen to the occasion to ensure this evil groundhog receives the death penalty.

The news gets better everyday.

That little furry fuck deserves to be shot in the face. I was over here thinking It was going to be warm out.

I guess this source sums things up a bit better.

What does the guy expect? It's an animal for crying out loud, and probably fucking with everyone anyway. It was cooped up all year and only gets to come out once to get fresh air, and when it does, it has all these cameras and microphones and shit in its face, of course its going to get scared and give a wrong answer every now and then.

I know this is the land of "anyone can sue anyone for anything at anytime", but this is a bit ridiculous to me.

This is America, the land of frivolous lawsuits, doesn't matter if it's Mickey D's, some animal, or even God, if someone felt wronged by any sort of entity for whatever reason, there's a lawsuit for that. That's what happens when you spell justice with a dollar sign.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

There is nothing to be gained from suing an animal. However, he could very well go after the animal's owner.

It's like someone suing God by suing the church.

I don't believe in it, but you won't beieve how many people actually do, especially those where the "Phil" (the groundhog) does his thing. My mom actually believed it and we lived in Oklahoma, way away from where he resides.

I don't think that groundhog signed a document or even volunteered to be up to the job. How do you know he simply doesn't have the right way of seeing his shadow? Do all groundhogs possess this ability? This reminds me of the news story about the beavers who were, I think, ordered by some Canadian government to be removed from a dam area.

Pretty much the reason why they should just get rid of "Groundhog Day" altogether. You drag a fucking animal out of a hole in the ground and "assume" that if it sees its shadow winter will be here longer; while if it doesn't spring is practically tomorrow. I trust an old person's knee more than I do this rodent.

ya'lls some stupid fucks.

you didn't even have to read the article, you just have to the thread to see that this is a fake (and really you should be expected to both if you're going to bother posting here)

but no, "the world is ending because everyone is stupider than me and suing groundhogs for REALS"

The funny truth is that the Groundhog itself is a lawyer.
