What does Kitty have to say?


 


Groundhogs, Frogs, Robots

Jimmy Groundhog Groundhog Day is coming up next Tuesday, and all eyes will be on Sun Prairie as Jimmy the Groundhog makes his weather prediction. Okay, not all eyes. Not hardly.  Jimmy doesn't get a much publicity as say, Punxsutawney Phil out east in Pennsylvania. Old Phil has been around a lot longer than Jimmy, and there was that whole Bill Murray movie that gave him extra cred, so it is tough to compete. But did you know there are other weather prognosticating animals vying for your attention as well? There's Furby the Wonder Chicken in Vancouver, British Columbia. Spike the Porcupine hails from Duluth, MN. In Cottage Grove, a pot-bellied pig named Hamlet would go shadow-seeking, but alas he died last year. Did you hear about the cold-blooded alternative in the fine metropolis of Snohomish, Washington?  There, they celebrate "GroundFrog Day," with a big old bullfrog named Snohomish Slew. He lives in a 75 gallon tank at the Just Frog Amphibian Center in Snohomish.  If you think all that is kind of silly..I wonder what you'll think of this.  PETA  is now asking the folks in Punxsutawney to replace their groundhog with a robotic version. William Deeley, who's president of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, says hogwash to the group's claims that Phil is being mistreated. He says says the animal is "being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania." HAPPY GROUNDHOG, GROUNDFROG, ROBOT DAY EVERYBODY! More about Sun Prairie's Groundhog festivities here.

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
