Groundhog Day With Stan The World's Smallest Sheep

Hello there Audience!  Welcome to our 5th Annual Groundhog Day Report with Stan Sagrado The World's Smallest Sheep!  We made sure to have a big supply of leaves on hand at Headquarters today in order to keep Stan happy and get the best information out of the little guy.

Cloon: Hola Stan!  Como estas?

Stan: Hola Muchacho!  Muy bien, gracias!

Cloon:  Stan we are all chomping at the bit, so to speak, for the report on what the Groundhogs said today!

Stan: Claro que si!  Well, early this morning before I did my Groundhog research on the interwebs...I went to my local "watering hole" to see if I could hear any good Groundhog gossip and get any inside scoops...

Stan:  Here I am trying to blend in and not look conspicuous...

Cloon:  Uh, I thinks you might have stood out a bit...clearly you're the only miniature "sheep" there...

Stan:  Then suddenly, I couldn't believe my ears!  Everyone was buzzing about the new Groundhog taking British Columbia by storm...

Cloon: Oh tell me more...

Stan:  Well this guy goes by the name "Varmit the BC Marmot" and he is the first representation Western Canada has ever had on the Groundhog scene.  And apparently he has been spreading the word that he has some very valuable information on Spring for British Columbians...but that it will cost us!

Cloon:  Wait a minute, I know Varmit the Marmot!  He lives in my backyard and he did "landscaping" for me last year.  Well, let's call the guy in here for a personalized Groundhog Day report, shall we?

Cloon: Varmit, we can't wait to hear the low-down on Spring!  What say you?

Varmit:  Like Stan said, my highly valuable information comes at a price...

Cloon: Ok, Neytiri is fishing out some yummy timbits for you!

Varmit:  I'm afraid that won't be sufficient...

Cloon:  Oy, yoy, yoy!  Talk about a high maintenance Marmot Groundhog!  Ok buddy, I've gone into my pantry and I have 5 cases of Num-Nums for ya...now I'm going to give you a case a year for the next 5 years to bribe you for early Spring predictions ensure accurate yearly predictions.  And please note that we will never feed you dog food as we think that interferes with 
Punxsutawney Phil's accuracy!  Only cat food will do...

Varmit:  It's a deal!  Ok, here's the goods...I did NOT see my shadow this morning and hence I predict an early Spring for Western Canada!

Cloon:  Woo hoo!  Thanks Varmit!  Now let's move on to all the famous Groundhogs and their predictions...

Stan:  Well, Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow and predicts 6 more weeks of winter and apparently the little big guy has been taken into protective custody because of this!   
Ontario’s Wiarton Willie will be joining Phil in PC because he also saw his shadow and predicts 6 more weeks of winter!   Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam did NOT see his shadow and predicts an early Spring for Eastern Canada.    Staten Island Chuck in New York did see his shadow and predicts 6 more weeks of winter (they better make that PC location big!).  General Beauregard Lee in Atlanta did NOT see his shadow and predicts an early Spring.

Cloon:  Thank you so much Stan for all your info!  Stan will be spending the next few months drinking cerveza eating leaves at Headquarters and is available for Spanish lessons and as a date for the Valentine's Ball!

Now onto our Super Bowl activities...

Here is Neytiri limbering up with her "yogalates" in preparation for our Half-Time Show..

And here is me getting into character to prepare for the Show...

Audience, we are excited to announce the Directorial Debut of Stan The World's Smallest Sheep!  Stan has choreographed our Super Bowl number and directed the video of it...and remember folks, Stan's first language is Spanish so cut the little guy some slack, will ya?

Now presenting our Super Bowl Half-Time Show entitled:

"It's Noon Christmas Somewhere"

Enjoy the Super Bowl!

  7. Oh what a great report! Stan is so cute. And good job blending in (sort of, heh heh) the crowd and getting inside info! Varmit's prediction is pretty good. Though it may be because of some bribes. LOL.
