Smackdown!: Punxsutawney Phil vs. Phil Collins
WHO?: The most famous of spring-predicting groundhogs.
PRO: Inspired the classic film Groundhog Day. Right 39% of the time, according to random page I found on the Internet.
CON: Wrong 61% of the time. Basically, as Bill Murray has pointed out, an overgrown squirrel.
WHO?: Singer/songwriter/drummer/vague annoyance.
PRO: There's so much he needs to say to you--so many reasons why.
CON: If you told him you were drowning, he would not lend a hand. Also, "Sussudio": What the hell was that about?
WINNER: Gotta go with Punxsutawney Phil. Groundhog Day really is a classic. Also, who knows how many people Phil Collins has allowed to drown?
