“We accept weather predictions from a rodent, but deny climate change evidence by scientists”

A political Groundhog Day saying that has been printed on GIFs is:

“Only in America do we accept weather predictions from a rodent, but deny climate change evidence by scientists. Happy Groundhog Day!”

The saying was posted by “Nunya Beeswax” on Twitter on February 2, 2014.

The first half of the Groundhog Day saying is older. “The fact that we get our weather predictions from a rodent just epitomizes my opinion of the vocation” was posted on Twitter on February 2, 2009.


Wikipedia: Groundhog Day
Groundhog Day (Canadian French: Jour de la Marmotte; Pennsylvania German: Grundsaudaag, Murmeltiertag) is a traditional holiday originating in the United States that is celebrated on February 2. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then the spring season will arrive early, some time before the vernal equinox; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its den, and winter weather will persist for six more weeks.

Modern customs of the holiday involve early morning celebrations to watch the groundhog emerging from its burrow.

I wonder if other countries are snickering at the US today because we take weather predictions from a rodent?
