Punxsutawney Phil looking pretty piss pleased at the attention.
Are you kidding me? I mean really, I don't know about anyone else, but this is just insane. Unfortunately I feel as though I should have seen it coming. I have for quite a long time now been disillusioned with PETA. I mean it's one thing to work towards safe environments and treatment of animals, but it's quite another to go mad over a groundhog that is perfectly happy and well cared for. (I have to admit I thought I was reading The Onion for a moment and had to double check!)
Does Phil bite every time they pick him up? Does he shiver and quake? Is his fur matted, his eyes lacklustre, is he malnourished? No, no, and no. In fact is is one of the happiest and safest and best cared for groundhogs in the world.
Once again, PETA is off their rocker. Going a bit nuts there. Making me really and truly wonder what the heck is in their water and their sprout salads. Not to mention the fact that building the Punxsutawney Phill robot would not be good for the environment. But then, they don't care about the environment. What they do care about is... well, I'm not sure anymore.
I am certain that these great PETA thinkers ought to a) be sent to PETA rehab. Or b) get a hobby that has nothing to do with animals or drinking water. Or c) they ought to get a prescription for their OCD and any other psychoanalytic conditions they may have. It's just not right, I tell you, just not right. A robot Punxsutawney Phil indeed.
