Do your spring tomatoes now look like wilted stalks of celery?
Does your winter wardrobe have hangar burns from going in and out of the storage closet several times a week?
Do your children march off to school clad in shorts, sandals, t-shirts, wool gloves, and parkas?
Does your calendar say Spring but the thermometer says Winter?
Is your electric meter spinning out of control with both the air conditioner and the electric heater running on the same day and often at the same time?
Have you suffered emotional stress trying to decide whether it is time to uncover the swimming pool or enroll your children in ice hockey?
Did your yearly “Spring Garage Sale” include your long-johns on the “everything’s a dollar table,” leaving you stranded and shivering the next day?
The Groundhog proclaimed to the world, and Facebook, that we would have an early spring. Millions of closets were then stripped of winter shoes and clothing that would be outgrown by the next winter and donated to local thrift stores, only to be re-purchased by the original donors the next day. The entire Southland whose definition of winter is a couple of days below freezing, has been tricked into forsaking Snicker bars, Mocha Frappes, cheesecake, and dusting off “Sweating to the Oldies” prematurely in anticipation of an early Spring and the new swim suite line. Where there should be tan lines, too many are suffering from frost lines.
If you or a loved one or two or three have suffered from this misrepresentation of spring’s arrival perpetrated and instigated by an incompetent groundhog, then join this class action suit against the dumb Groudhog.
Call 1-800-Sue-the-Hog. A member of the law offices of Mason, Dixon, and Southern will handle your claim. Southerners will be given preferential treatment, as it was a Yankee hog causing the problem.
