The Legend of Greyhog Day

*A special, late breaking post for our Greyhound Friends!

According to legend, every February a sad little Greyhog in Vermont ventures out of his hole to observe the local weather. It is said that if Greyhog sees his shadow, runs back down the hole and returns to his sofa, six additional weeks of winter will follow. Let's go now to a live feed from the scene and find out if we can put away those snow shovels!


 Here he is now folks. Please observe silence - you know how easy they spook!
 


It's not looking good for warm weather lovers. Let's hope the little bugger doesn't turn back now.
  


Saved by turdsicles. We may just have a chance to kiss winter good bye!



Not factored prior to this report: the Greyhog brain-to-body mass ratio.
 


Don't put away those snow shovels just yet.

  1. You've been "schwinging" a lot lately, Nigel! Pretty impressive to have a fifth leg in that cold weather! ;)

  25. There's this scientific technique called fMRI that shows what part of the brain is active when a person thinks about different things or takes various actions. I'd love to see an fMRI of the brain of someone with a sense of humor like yours! It would be unique, that's for sure!

    Turdsicles! I'm laughing.
