Many of us thoughtlessly and mercilessly mock the poor Groundhog's weather-forecasting abilities.
But please remember that the poor little bugger has a hard job to do and it's not getting any easier because of shifting weather patterns.
We should be grateful that the selfless Groundhog persists in performing this thankless task. Who would do his job if he didn't? Not the apathetic Honey Badger, that's for goddamn sure --
Or the equally lazy Slothy McSloth.
Beavers already have a full-time job being the national symbol of Canada, so they don't have the time to take on additional duties --
And the job certainly couldn't be done by anyone in the Otter family because they all have short attention spans and anger management issues.
So hug a Groundhog today and thank him for his service!
