Prosecutor wants Punxsutawney Phil put to death for poor prediction

Pennsylvania’s famous weather prognosticator is being sued by an Ohio prosecutor for misrepresenting an early spring.

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day earlier this year, which, according to legend, means that spring will come early.  But, the northeast has continued to see snow and temperatures in the teens.  Now, the Ohio lawyer wants to hold the predicting rodent personally responsible for his false predictions.  In fact, Attorney Mike Gmoser is seeking the death penalty.

“When I came to work in the wind and the cold, I said to  myself something is wrong with Phil.  You know Punxsutawney has some answers  that he needs to give, and I think I’m just going to have to indict him,” Gmoser said.

Neither Phil or anyone from the Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle has commented on the case.
