Who could have predicted this?

Michael Gmoser, the prosecuting attorney for Butler County, Ohio, has issued an indictment against Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous weather-predicting rodent, calling for his execution. The indictment charges the groundhog with a “misrepresentation of early spring.” This punishment appears harsh, but as the prosecutor explained, “Since he’s already serving a life sentence behind bars, as you know, there wasn’t much left as far as a penalty other than a death sentence.”

Pennsylvania’s Nurick Law Group has come to to Phil’s defense, issuing a cease and desist letter. Their letter begins:

Please be advised that Nurick Law Group, LLC proudly represents the interests of Phil Sowerby, a/k/a “Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby” a/k/a “Punxsutawney Phil” (hereinafter “Punxsutawney Phil”) his predecessors and progeny, for the purposes of this preposterous prosecution and persecution. Punxsutawney Phil provides (primarily Pennsylvanians) preeminent prognostication predicated on the position of his shadow.
