Ohio prosecutor seeks death penalty for Punxsutawney Phil

You may know him better as the groundhog responsible for predicting the arrival of spring each year but one midwestern prosecutor says Phil has gotten it wrong one too many times and now must die for his sins.  No joke.  Check out the story at the Wall Street Journal Law Blog or see a copy of the indictment here.

The above clip, if you didn't already know, is from the classic Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day though it is really Chris Elliott's tour de force performance that makes the clip, as well as most of the movie, work.
