Yesterday was Groundhog's Day.
It appears that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) would like those who observe Groundhog's Day to use a MECHANICAL animal, instead of a real animal.
I wasn't aware that the sweet, fat Groundhog was abused or violated when it poked it's head up from it's happy little hole in the ground to see if the sun was shining or not on the special day.
Really?!?!?!?!? I guess each individual needs to have our own personal mission in life and make sure that we explore our life calling, but calling for a MECHANICAL ANIMAL?
Sigh! Oh well...
