What if I don't have a groundhog? Some people call their penises 'hogs'...
Does it count if my penis casts a shadow? Does it have to be erect at the time?

I believe if it's erect and casts a shadow, it can be called a sundial

Well, old Phil in Punxsutawney, PA saw his shadow - 6 more weeks of Winter.

But General Beauregard Lee in Atlanta, GA did not so an early Spring's in store for the South.

Duh.

Groundhog Day in the U.S. is based on Candlemas, one of the pagan celebrations that's still around in a bastardized sort of way. Candlemas was originally halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox and supposedly the weather on that day could predict the end of winter:

According to the old English saying:

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again.

From Scotland:

If Candlemas Day is bright and clear,
There'll be two winters in the year.

From Germany:

For as the sun shines on Candlemas Day,
So far will the snow swirl until May.
For as the snow blows on Candlemas Day,
So far will the sun shine before May.

And from America:

If the sun shines on Groundhog Day;
Half the fuel and half the hay.

LOL, fred.

I knew about the effigies of Guy Fawkes but I "learned" about the effigies of the pope from:

That's interesting! I've never seen effigies of the pope burnt, but hey. Anyhoo that still doesn't really explain the rodent thing!
