On WFTL 850 AM Radio this morning, the hosts mentioned Groundhog day and said that when it was first started, the Groundhog was eaten after the forcast. Any truth in that????


Was doing some looking into that earlier, and yep, sure is. they had a lunch served at the Punxatawny moose Lodge..


“I heard Groundhog tastes like chicken.”

Should taste like squirrel since they’re in the same animal family…


It’s a very large, fat squirrel that can’t jump very well although it can climb trees.

There’s one that lives at my folks’ place that happily pretends he’s a squirrel (and the squirrels don’t mind) when they feed ’em.


We’re problem 700 miles apart but our local whistle pig Gen Beauregard Lee did not see his shadow so we get an early spring.

The fact that it is cludy and overcast with forecast of almost an inch of rain before the day is out might have contributed.


The South has a BETTER prediction…😉

“Sand Mountain Sam Predicts Early Spring On Groundhog Day”

“It’s Groundhog Day and that means its time to head to Sardis City, Alabama, to hear from everyone’s favorite meteorologist, Sand Mountain Sam.”

“Many people are familiar with Punxsutawney Phil, but not many people know about Sand Mountain Sam in Marshall County. Sam is an opossum who makes a prediction about the weather around Feb. 2 each year.”

“Sam predicted that an early spring is on the way in 2023.”




How many woodchucks could a wood chipper chuck if a wood

Well that’s not that much of a problem here in western Massachusetts where we are experiencing our warmest winter since 1942….if it stays like this I might be getting my sailboat back in the water the first week of April….

This climate change thing works out I might be able to sail10 months out of the year instead of 7….I’d be okay with that….


This is my 7th decade in New England and it is indeed the
warmest winter I have seen.
However, I have seen some of the coldest and this freakout
over tomorrows minus 20 has me laughing at the sheer panic
going on with all the warnings of a frozen death knell unless
you follow the NWS guidlines.
Sheesh…put on a sweater.

It’s because we’ve become a nation of morons, 54% of our fellow Americans ages 18-74 can only understand what they read at the level of the average of 13 year old according to the Literacy Project’s research…

If over half the nation is incapable of understanding basic reading materials the idea that a lot of them might get frostbite when it’s 0 degrees F outside starts to make sense…

But remember Public Education needs more money…because we’re getting such value for all the money we currently piss down that rabbit hole.


VOV, one of ol’ Poe’s favorite activities in his now homebound days is watching well-produced sailing videos, particularly of Caribbean cruising, that take him back to youthful good times with young Miz Poe.

The snap and pop of the sails and the hiss of the passing water are almost palpable, as are the tropic airs…

Wonderful memories…


Evil, smelly little fuckers. I was a summer maintenance man at a local ski area in my youth, and the furry little bastards would eat the cedar siding off the corners of the buildings as high as they could reach. Porcupines are nearly as bad. .22 rounds were cheap, and I dispatched a ton of those critters.


Same here. .22 rounds were cheap 60 years ago and it was great fun to kill off those groundhogs after seeing the damage they could do to a freshly sprouted field of soybeans back in Hoosierland. Then we used the carcasses for catfish bait. / s


I think I was paying $1 for 50 hollowpoints. My dad thought that was outrageously high.


Ones at Ft McCoy appreciate MREs and various snack food in crinkly wrappers.


All this talk about hogs shore is making me want a bacon sammich…and some pork chops…and ribs. Ground hog…as are we say down heah…sausage. Do believe I have some Conecuh Brand in the freezerator. Ground up hog is also excellent in gravy…with a cat head. What say you ninja? Will TVI chime in on the sausage, gravy, and cat head subject?


Sausage? Gravy? Cat Head Biscuits?

We are boarding the Midnight Train To Georgia!!!

gabn/gabaf/hbtd/rtr 😉  😎 


They wuz right tasty, ninja. Took the edge right off. Kinda hurt myself on plate 3. I keep ground hog in inventory. Jump on that midnight train, not only will you find another skillet of sausage/gravy and a pan of cat heads, you’ll find a warm place to spend the night and this weather condition; (gabn/gabaf/rtr/H(og)B(e)T(asty)D(ishes)







Another version, but excellent!


Thought about posting that version, SFC D, but I wanted to do a hat tip to the FIRST (ht2 Hack Stone) version. I guess this attached meme is what happened around D’s Cantina today?

Pretty damn close!


How many of us remember this song?

“The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia”


The ORIGINAL by Vickie Lawrence, written in 1972 by her husband Bobby Russell:


I remember both versions!


A Classy Song.

They just don’t make hits such as this anymore…😉😎


“All this talk about hogs shore is making me want a bacon sammich…”

And there we were, concerned that it might be making you old cannon-cockers horny, King… 😉

Well, my neighbor caught a pic of a baby unicorn. They said it was a coyote, but I say it is a unicorn, and they can’t tell me just because they saw it with their own eyes I’m wrong! I say it is proving this alternate reality where everything means whatever I want is to continue for the foreseeable future! It is not a carnivore looking to make a meal of the cute kitten across the road. Unicorns eat star light and sunshine and that’s how we ca power our world from their farts! My neighbor is evil. Bet they support Trump. The unicorn is proof the world is changing and will be better off when all the carnivores and Trump supporters die!

Just in case…/sarc.


And now this….Sheesh!!! 🙄

The comments posted in the article are pure gold…🤭

“Deadly fungal infection ‘Valley fever’ that kills one in 100 sufferers is spreading across the US ‘because of climate change’ – as hit zombie show ‘The Last of Us’ heightens fungi fears”

“A deadly fungal infection is spreading across the US — and scientists believe it is due to climate change.”

“Cases of ‘Valley Fever’ – which is 10 times more deadly than flu – have risen 20-fold since the turn of the century.”

“In a high-warming scenario, this would mean that by 2100 the number of affected states could rise from 12 to 17, while the number of cases could increase by 50 percent.”


Some of the comments…😆🤭😁

‘Shall we all start wearing bags over our heads? I can hear it now – “if you don’t want grandma to die, put on your head bag!!!”

“Hilarious. Do they honestly believe Americans will fall for this crsp again? I hate their fearmongering.”

“Strange no comments about spreading in Mexico or warmer Central American countries.”

“Just shows how little we can trust scientists these days. They tried to tell us Covid came from bats and that there was a vaccine that prevented infection and transmission also. When you hear the words Climate Change just follow the money. It won’t take you long to see the meddling fingers of global elitists.”

“My mother has lived her entire life in the southwest desert, and she did get valley fever 30 years ago, took some pills for two months and no problem.”

“Well thats a relief. Ill be dead already.”


“We knew the dems would cook up ‘something’ to take the heat off all those classified documents being found in
everybody’s garages now. WTH? Do these people never clean their homes? I know what’s in MY home.”

“People are so gullible… Fungus and spores are everywhere all the time. How do you think yeast is made & we eat it in our most common foods. It’s life!!”

“I lived in Desert in Arizona for 30 years and never got Valley Fever nor did anyone I know get it. Just another scare tactic by the kept and their Climate Change babble.”

“Who needs Valley Fever? Social media has done a fine job of turning people into zombies.”

“I had the runs the other day. I swear it was due to climate change.”

“What happened to the murder hornets?”


Wait’ll they hear about Hantavirus…

RGR 4-78

Hantavirus is no shit deadly for young folks with healthy immune systems.


As of the end of 2020*, 833 cases of hantavirus disease were reported in the United States since surveillance began in 1993. 

Poe’s too damned lazy to calculate the rate of infection, or the lethality, but both are obviously infinitesimal… 🙄 

RGR 4-78

Yes, it is not much of a problem for most of the population.

It is a dead-end virus that mostly has adverse effects on young adults with robust immune systems. Almost all cases are in the desert southwest and mostly in the wet years when there is an overabundance of mice. When it does strike it is a deadly risk for a very small part of the population.


MRS D had a raging case of valley fever in high school, left some permanent lung damage. It’s no joke but not exactly the zombie apocalypse.


Oh, SFC D:

Now we feel bad. So sorry to hear about Mrs. D!

The article states that Valley Fever is spreading, all because of “Climate Change”..and that by the year 2100…

That is why we rolled our eyes…Am surprised Trump has not been blamed for this…

Way too much fear mongering…Way too much…


It’s really doesn’t affect her, just a bit of a shadow on an x-ray. I gotta call BS on the climate change thing, probably spreading because of increased construction in the southwest due to Californication.



Glad to hear Mrs. D is doing alright!

AMEN on calling BS on “Climate Change”.

We are so frickin tired of hearing it as a “reason”.

How long has Al Gore been preaching this?




A Proud Infidel®™

Al Gore Jr. also said that the streets of NYC would be underwater by 2013 and that shit didn’t happen either. By the way, Plymouth Rock is STILL at Sea Level!


SFC D, are all those Californicators bringing their own water supply?

Seems to ol’ Poe that those folks may be jumpin’ from the fryin’ pan into the fire… 🤔

Hey, you probably stole the joke of our very own beloved Punster Jeff!

Look, it’s a My Little Phony! 😉 

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

I don’t give a damn what no east coast ground hog sez about winter out there. Out here (Rocky Mountains Utah) we’ve been getting SNOW, and lots of it. And we want MOOORE! We have a drought to make up for.


Six more weeks of Climate Change, eh? Is that the climate change where it gets warmer, or the climate change where it gets colder?


Hallelujah…It’s About Time!!!!

Too bad we can’t get rid of three other Racists…They go by the names of Al Sharpton, Joy Reid and Louis Farrakhan..

“Ilhan Omar Gets The Boot: House Votes Her Off Foreign Affairs Committee As Democrats Cite ‘Racism’

“The House voted Thursday to kick Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar off the House Foreign Affairs Committee, a decision that Republicans vowed to take because of Omar’s history of antisemitic and anti-American remarks.”

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

“Ilhan Omar Gets The Boot: House Votes Her Off Foreign Affairs Committee As Democrats Cite ‘Racism’

Now, if Omar the Brother-Marrier were to claim stoopidity instead of racissssism, she might be able to make a point (like the one on top of her head). Otherwise, she gots nuttin.


ANOTHER Hallelujah!! It’s About Time!

“NYPD Clears Out Group Of Migrant ‘Single Men’ Refusing Eviction From Ritzy Manhattan Hotel. The migrants, mostly single men, were refusing to give up a free stay at the $300-per-night hotel”

“City officials planned to transfer migrants from the hotel to a 1,000-bed shelter in Brooklyn on Sunday. The illegal migrants, who were given free rooms at the $300-per-night Hells Kitchen hotel, refused to vacate, however, and were joined by activists rallying outside the building.”

A Proud Infidel®™

WELL GEE WHIZ, didn’t the self-anointed elites of Nooh Yawk City declare that burg to be a “Sanctuary City”? Let the lib pols and the activists put them up, I’ve heard they trash hotels like the homeless do.


Whatever you do,


Keep Em Coming!

The House Is On A Roll!!

“John Kerry’s Secret CCP Negotiations Probed By GOP Oversight Chairman”

“House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., is probing Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC) John Kerry’s secretive negotiations with his Chinese counterparts.”

“Comer informed Kerry in a letter sent Thursday afternoon that the committee, under his leadership, has opened an investigation into Kerry’s role in the Biden administration and, in particular, his high-level climate negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). To date, Kerry has ignored information and document requests from Comer and other committee Republicans sent when they were in the minority.”



“Kellen Winslow II Seeking Reduced Prison Sentence, Claiming ‘Physical Trauma’ From NFL Entitles Him To It”

“Kellen Winslow II has requested that his 14-year prison sentence be reduced due to physical trauma that he endured while playing football.”

“Winslow was sentenced to 14 years behind bars in March 2021 under a plea agreement after he was convicted of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, assault with intent to commit rape, indecent exposure and lewd conduct in public. Originally, Winslow was facing life in prison.”

“Winslow’s attorneys originally brought this argument before the court, saying that he had sustained more than 1,000 hits to the head during his nine seasons.”

“Winslow, who played tight end like his Hall of Fame father, was drafted sixth overall by the Cleveland Browns.”
