Now In...Groundhog Day Report from Stan The World's Smallest Sheep


Cloon: Audience, joining me in-studio today is Stan, The World's Smallest Sheep.  For those who aren't familiar with Stan, the little guy's native language is Spanish, but he does speak some English as well...Well hello there Stan!

Stan: Hola Muchacho!

Cloon: Thanks for joining us today to report on yesterday's Groundhog Day predictions.  I understand that you were in attendance at some Groundhog Day festivities. Can you share with the Audience what happened?

Stan: Claro que si. I attended the pancake breakfast yesterday in Alberta and awaited the weather prediction of Balzac Billy a local groundhog.  So Balzac Billy, also known as the Prairie Prognosticator, emerged from his burrow and saw his shadow, meaning there will be 6 more weeks of winter.

Cloon: Now theese little guy is supposed to have an accuracy rate of 83.9%!  Which is very impressive! However, us Westerners aren't crazy about the thought of more winter...Stan, how did the other famous Groundhogs weigh in on theese subject?

Stan: Well, Ontario’s Wiarton Willie, Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam,West Virginia’s French Creek Freddie, Georgia’s Gen. Beauregard Lee, Michigan’s Woody the Woodchuck, Ohio’s Buckeye Chuck and New York’s Staten Island Charles G. Hogg all did not see their shadows, so they each predict an early spring.  However, Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow and predicts more winter. 

Cloon: Yikes there must be pressure on Punxsutawney Phil given his prediction is different!  And the little guy usually has quite the crowd in attendance to boot.  I hopes that ice cream and dog food they feed him isn't messing up his predictions...

Stan: Es posible!

Cloon: Uh Stan, in the footage from yesterday, I notice you are fighting over a leaf with 3 other characters... Didn't they feed you any free pancakes for covering theese reports?
Stan: I only eat leaves.

Cloon: Right... washed down with a little cerveza...huh, little buddy.

Stan: Eso es correcto.

Cloon: Did you ever see the movie "Groundhog Day", Stan? Theese one is really funny...

Cloon: Did you ever see the movie "Groundhog Day", Stan? Theese one is really funny...

Stan: (Puzzled look on his face...)

Cloon: I'm just messin' with you little buddy!  It's an inside joke.  Well, Secretary Neytiri has prepared you a full plate of fresh foliage for being our studio guest and giving us the Groundhog Day report...Muchas gracias Stan, it is always fun to have you here!

Stan: Adios Amigos!

Cloon: Does anyone in the Audience live near a famous Groundhog?  Let us know, will ya?

We still can't stop laughing about the world's smallest sheep. But guess what, WE have 2 of those small sheep and they aren't very good at weather predictions. Hahaha.

Austin says that sheep is more like a guinea pig! No wonder he jokes around! Identity crisis!! lol

Ginger Jasper said...

Such fun loved the interview and it made us smile. Hugs GJ xx

Cat said...

Our local groundhog is Wiarton Willie and as you mentioned, he predicted an early spring...we hope he is right!!!!

Mumsy and Furkids said...

Oh, sweet Clooney you have cracked us up today! That world's tiniest sheep is just a hoot. We have a sheep that looks a little like that one but ours has more colors. He is tiny though. Hugs and nose kisses

Cathy Keisha said...

Buena! Buena! We haven't had winter yet here so I can predict only 6 weeks of winter since winter ends in, well, 6 weeks. BTW, does Stan predict the Super Bowl too? Baila usted la Rumba, Stan?

Julia Williams said...

Hahahaha!! Clooney you are a clever kitteh and such a cut-up. I have to wonder at the person who first said, hey, maybe a rodent should play meteorologist for one day!!

Katie Isabella said...

This was unique and fun mom said. Me, I laffed. Mom's the one with the werds. xoxoxoxo

Mariodacat said...

We has Jimmy, the famous groundhog in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin - he's only 100 miles from us. He's actually more accurate than that Phil guy. I'll be talking about him in my post tomorrow. Oh, Phil is wrong - Spring is right around the corner.

The Island Cats said...

Oh Clooney! You crack us up! We like how you messed a little bit with Stan. Haha!

We're in Michigan so we're going with Woody the Woodchuck...who just happens to be a girl despite being called Woody...who predicted an early spring!

Prancer Pie said...

We don't know any groundhogs. But, Stan looks very intelligent and tasty. MOL!

meowmeowmans said...

Stan is funny (and kind of cute, too)!

We live sort of close to Punxatwaney Phil, Malverne Mel, and Staten Island Chuck. They were all over the map with their prognostications, so we say ... bring on Spring now! :)

Have a great weekend, dear friends!

Stan you are one sheep who leads his flock well! Your knowledge of groundhog activity is impressive!Wiarton Willy is the closest thing to celebrity gopheres we have out here in the west.But he lives in Ontario!He was number one on your list so he must be very reliable indeed! Heehee. Great post!
