    Great movie because it gave a new meaning to the phrase "Groundhog Day."

    From the movie Groundhog Day

    Phil: What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?
    Ralph: That about sums it up for me.

    I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, we made love like sea otters. *That* was a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get *that* day over, and over, and over...

    Ned... Ryerson!! "Needlenose Ned" "Ned the Head"
    Now, don't you tell me you don't remember me because I sure as heckfire remember you.

    Happens to be my favorite movie ;)

    Anybody else with a favorite line?

    This year I'm going to try deep-frying a groundhog stuffed with a prairie dog stuffed with a squirrel. A groundoggerel.

    I don't really care about groundhogs day but PETA does. They want to replace Phil with a robot, lol.

    "This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you! " - Phil Conners


    lol

    PETA may be extremists but they can't compare to the KKK.

    I would be watching Groundhog Day tonight after work, but today just so happens to be the season 6 premiere of Lost. Sorry...

    The only problem with a groundoggerel is that the meat is really tough.

    Even though I've been living outside of North America for over 3 years now I still find groundhog day amusing, if only because of the movie. I try to watch it every year. It's one of my top 20 favourites.

    I've never known groundhog day to be a big deal. Then again I've spent all but one year of my entire life in CA which is code for sunshine. Now ... as I look out my window at the snow I think I better start paying attention. :eek:

    I enjoy the movie and that's about it for me. Of course I'll find out what happens becaue it will be a story of interest on the news or on the net, but If I don't happen to hear I won't seek out the groundhog results because it's not really important to me.

    I'm having me some blueberry waffles this morning :cool:

    ...and am I the only one who wonders how sea otters make love?

    Tidbit: The movie is included in some great government library of cultural whatnots. I think. I read that on the internetz somewhere so you know it has to be true.

    I like to see a man of advancing years throwing caution to the wind. It's inspiring in a way.


    :D

    Just for S&Gs I thought I'd post this, excerpted from The Lay of the Last Minstrel, by Willard Scott:
    It's actually very well written I think :)

    On the bright side the prediction has a 39% accuracy rate (according to the National Climatic Data Center.)
