    Last year, mayor DiBlasio kills one



    Now, one of the fuckers bites the Mayor of Wisconsin

    Mayor in Wisconsin bitten in the ear by groundhog during Groundhog Day celebration (VIDEO)
    Mayor Jonathan Freund of Sun Prairie got too close to Jimmy the groundhog during the city's annual celebration. Adding insult to injury, Jimmy's handlers later said the mayor translated the groundhog's weather prediction wrong.

    A mayor in Wisconsin has learned a valuable lesson about his city's weather-predicting critter: Don't get too close.

    Jimmy, the official groundhog in Sun Prairie, bit the mayor's ear during a Groundhog Day celebration on Monday.

    The groundhog's handler was holding the animal next to Mayor Jonathan Freund's face when it promptly bit down on his ear.

    Freund flinched, but he went on with his declaration that Jimmy had predicted an early spring.


    WISC-TV reports that the Groundhog Day celebration became even more precarious when Jimmy's handlers, Jerry and Maria Hahn, said the mayor had gotten it wrong and that there would be six more weeks of winter.

    Then the city later issued a statement saying only the mayor can translate Jimmy's prediction.

    It's a holiday for weathermen and women every where. What else are they going to fill up the local news with. If you live in a big city, at least there are plenty of rapes, murders and robberies to scare the public with. If you live in a hick town, there is nothing on the news except how the rotary club is scheduling this seasons dinner. Groundhog Day is big, Big, BIG!

    That actually looks like a good reason to keep doing it.

    You see the drinker's potato nose on that Wisconsin Mayor? I'm surprised that rodent didn't go after that instead of his ear.

    There are people from Punxsutawney, PA who have lived there for their entire lives. If they're lucky, some of them might have been to Pittsburgh, which is an hour away, maybe 3 or 4 times ever. That is the extent of their culture. This one day of year, they have a true purpose...think retard and her kitten bowl. Let's not take that away from them.

    Besides, the fucking rodent gets the weather forecast correct nearly as often as the clowns on my local stations.
