Possibly justifiable bad behavior

This blog doesn't usually take the side of the animal, but I can't help making an exception for this one.

Groundhog bites mayor who cut zoo funding
NY DAILY NEWS - Maybe it was revenge.

Last week, Mayor Bloomberg took a bite out of the Staten Island Zoo's budget.

Monday, the zoo's weather-predicting groundhog, Charles G. Hogg, took a bite out of Hizzoner.

"He got my finger pretty good," Bloomberg allowed, as he held the recalcitrant groundhog up in the air and declared spring on the way.

The Groundhog Day mayor-nipping came just three days after Bloomberg chomped 15% out of the zoo's budget, reducing it to $1.3 million from $1.6 million.

  1. Not the Mayor! NOT THE MAYOR!!

  2. You're a fool to mess with us round furry burrowing critters, even if you're the mayor. It's a lesson that must be learned.
