Impromptu Groundhog Day Megapost

I hadn’t planned to commemorate Groundhog Day (arguably our most ludicrous holiday in the US). But I got carried away with some absurdities I can’t help sharing.

Let’s start with some groundhog art.


My favorite:

There were a number of groundhog mascot outfits.

This one looks like he’s being held up by the cops:

I can’t quite explain why I find these photos so entertaining. Maybe it’s the unflattering angles…maybe the logo…

I’ve heard rumors that the neighborhood groundhogs don’t trust this guy:

…or this adorable decoy.

I was rather surprised by the culinary representations of the groundhog.

Most cakes and cupcakes appear unnerved, unhappy or otherwise deranged.

I would NOT disturb this one…

I’m not sure this technically IS a groundhog, but the photo was titled “groundhog-plus.”

I really hope the person who made this has a terrific story behind it, or feels a special connection with the animal. That’s the only way I can justify its existence.

A moment frozen in taxidermy.

  2. Did you catch anything yet?We had a very large woccdhuok out on the side of the house, making him or herself comfortable in the clump of woods on that side, and venturing out into the yard, kinda freaking me out, a couple years back. It seemed big enough to wander off with a small toddler We spent some days with no children out on that side, and not even out back without Mom, until my husband eradicated it.I’m with story girl, I think your dad would be proud
