Probably thought it was George Jones.

Hey, I sent that in, too! 8)

Operator: "So, where is this guy?"
Policeman: "PUNXSUTAWNEY"
Operator: "How do you spell that?"
Policeman: "Uuhh, I'll wait until he gets to Oliver Township and call you again."

And me too, andy.

Even though this article was being deliberately coy, it seems, other sources report he was using mouth-to-opposum resuscitation techniques.

NTTAWWT

Also, is Resuscitating the Opposum a euphemism?

Hey! I thought about sending this in! My first thought was, "OMG they've killed Punxsutawney Phil!" My second thought was, "Yuck". I've taught CPR for the Red Cross and I don't remember this being part of the curriculum. Also may I take a moment and thank the fine folks who thought of spellcheck otherwise I would never have been able to spell Punxsutawney or curriculum.

And so did I...

If it's playing dead do you pretend CPR? or do you just drink more?

-And so did I...!

(Why not just do an Adama? "So say we all!")


*SMACKS* Jeff!!

geech, the thanks he gets for trying to be a good samaratin....

About the article. "Yuck!" That is all.

Thanks to me, too!

Was he using the official American Red Cross method? If not, why, that's just silly.

Listening intently to a different drummer, I would like to point out that it was I who did not send it in.

Me neither.

Gotta be a Steelers fan.
