GOBBLER'S KNOB, Pennsylvania - The world's most famous weather predicting varmint has gone to that groundhog hole in the sky.
Punxsutawney Phil, 121, had just barely poked his sleepy old head out of his hole on Groundhog Day when a shotgun blast rang out shattering the serene Pennsylvania morning.
Tittle Tattle Tonight is reporting that the nation's most famous four legged male weather predictor was shot by the nation's most famous two-legged female hunter.
Sarah Palin, dressed in camouflage from head to toe, had been lying in wait in Gobbler's Knob, which is located just outside of Punxsutawney for six hours.
And as soon as she spotted Punxsutawney Phil, "Crosshairs" Sarah emptied both barrels of her Remington 870 12-Gauge Pump Action Shotgun and was heard to have yelled out, "Gotcha you low-life varmint! - whatcha think about your friggin shadow now you hairy little beaver?"
When Palin was informed that Punxy Phil is a groundhog and not a beaver she smiled and simply replied, "Hey ya know what? Ya seen one beaver ya seen 'em all!"
Pennsylvania authorities are looking into the possibility of filing disturbing the peace charges against the ex-future mother-in-law of Levi Johnston since the state is after all a 'Blue' state.
