Because It’s Groundhog Day!: Chuck G. Hogg Bites the Mayor

in Because It’s…, YD News
Groundhog Day

Well, happy Groundhog Day friends. Congrats to the Steelers fans and condolences to the Cards. We didn’t see much yoga going on, but it was an intense game.

And now your Goundhog Day news…

NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg was bit while trying to lure the little bugger out with snacks, but Chuck G. Hogg preferred his finger instead. In response:

“Let me say this: For security reasons, there’s a limit to what I can say, but I think it is fair that whenever the people of Staten Island are at risk, the mayor is willing to put himself at risk, his physical well-being in harm’s way, to protect them,” Mayor Bloomberg said.

He added, “Given the heightened response against terrorism, and clearly in this case a terrorist rodent who could very well have been trained by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, I’m not at liberty to say any more than that.”

If you didn’t know, Bloomy has quite the sense of humor.

PS. Chuck says an early spring is coming, but Punxsutawney Phil says 6 more weeks of winter. With snow in the forecast we’re going with Phil on this one, even though it’ s all bollocks anyway! Ahh, back to hibernation.
