Groundhog Grudge

You may remember that two years ago on Groundhog Day, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had a run-in with Staten Island Chuck, the city's official groundhog. Bloomberg is apparently still nursing a grudge after two years. An article sent to us by A Family Sibling from the New York Post reports that: "A laughing Bloomberg on Wednesday was overheard praising Staten Island Chuck's new cage -- which includes a plunger that pushes the animal out -- as 'much better than having to reach in and let the little son of a bitch bite you.'"

Let's review the circumstances, Mr. Mayor. As reported at the time, you were holding a corncob letting the animal take a few bites, then yanking it away. I have an idea. Let me take you out to dinner, let you start eating and then pull your plate away. Let's see how much you like that.

Huh. I guess the mayor isn't the only one still carrying a grudge.
