Mayor Bloomberg Attacked by Terrorist Groundhog


Ha. Yesterday during the city’s annual Groundhog Day ceremony (They still have that?), Charles G. Hogg, the groundhog in charge of predicting the weather, chomped down on Mayor Bloomberg’s hand when he attempted, through various subterfuge and trickery, to extract the animal from its cage. Bloomberg attempted to pull it together. “New Yorkers can take comfort that their mayor is willing to put himself and his physical well-being in harm’s way to protect them,” he told reporters, jesting that this was “clearly … a terrorist rodent that could very well have been trained by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan.” We think it’s possible he was just pissed about term limits. You know what they say. One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. [NYP]
