    Time to consult Dr. Oz on a weight loss plan since the wizard is busy consulting Dorthy.

    “Phil? Phil Connors, It’s me, Ned— Ryerson. “Needlenose Ned”? “Ned the Head”? C’mon, buddy. Case Western High. Ned Ryerson: I did the whistling belly-button trick at the high school talent show? Bing! Ned Ryerson: got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn’t graduate? Bing, again. Ned Ryerson: I dated your sister Mary Pat a couple times until you told me not to anymore? Well?" <— The point, love that movie, look forward to this strip everyday too!

    I’ve never seen a marmot as round as the one on the right. All those tourists feeding him?

    Of course .. .in other times and cultures, the groundhog might be thinking, ’Oh God .. am I that thin?

    Another reason:

    Country-Style Groundhog

    1 groundhog
    1/2 c. flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    1/4 tsp. soda
    1/4 c. cooking oil
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    NOTE:Clean and skin as soon as possible. Remove all sent glands. Cut off head, feet and tail. Cure in cool place by suspending from hook approximately 4 days. When ready to cook, lard according to recipe.

    Dress groundhog as for rabbit, removing the small sacs in the back and under the forearm. Soak groundhog overnight in salted water to remove wild flavor. Combine flour, salt, pepper and soda; rub into groundhog pieces. Brown grounhog in hot oil in skillet; sprinkle with sugar. Reduce heat; add 1/2 cup water. Cover; simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender. Remove cover; cook for 10 minutes longer.

    mmmmm, tastes like chicken

    You can’t remove the sent glands – they’ve been sent!

    Almost any culture before the Twentieth Century. Look at almost any Romantic era painting … the women tend to be on the chunky side … which was considered attractive.
    Truth be told .. I actually prefer women that way!

    At the end of winter, animals are not fat. It’s when they go to sleep that they are fat. Except humans, I guess…

    In fact, in many ‘third world’ cultures even today, being fat is considered a sign of wealth!
