So if you weren’t at The West Pole yesterday or anywhere near a TV in the Austin area, you probably won’t know what I’m talking about. The very first “Armadillo Day” was held yesterday in Bee Cave, Texas. Evidently, Texans don’t take kindly to others doing their thinking and prognosticating for them, especially when it comes from a mangy groundhog in Pennsylvania.
“Bee Cave Bob” emerged from his hole yesterday, predicted six more weeks of winter and more importantly, that Texas will see a definitive conservative trend in state politics. You see, unlike Punxsutawney Phil, who only makes mediocre meteorological predictions, Bee Cave Bob is a dynamic, multi-faceted creature who makes more relevant prognostications such as the political climate.
The event was hosted by The Benevolent Knights of the Raccoon and was attended by celebrities, politicians, entertainers and scores of Texans. Gary P. Nunn (pictured here at left with John Arthur Martinez and Mike Blakely) was on hand to sing the Armadillo Day Anthem.
