I Hate Groundhog Day

Yes, I know I'm a curmudgeon, but media coverage of Groundhog Day really pisses me off. Such a stupid superstition. If news crews rushed out when it was a very red dusk, or when someone walked under a ladder, we would think of this as a waste of time. So what's different here?

Apparently the rodent only has an accuracy rating of 40% (here are some fancy charts to prove it) which is about as accurate as flipping a coin.

Propped up by the greeting card companies in an unholy alliance with the oil companies, no doubt.
