JOHN AND THE WOODCHUCK GROUNDHOG’S DAY
By Lou Danzico, Cpm
While John was performing a task outdoors, he
spied a woodchuck running along the backside
of the building and ramming its little head
into the bricks. Was it inebriated? Rabid?
Poisoned? Deranged? Not at all.
if you prefer
The woodchuck had his head and
neck stuck in a peanut butter jar! It
couldn’t see and was probably suffering from oxygen deprivation.
John, being the outdoorsman
that he is, decided that if he didn’t
do something the woodchuck
would certainly die. At that moment, he looked across the court
and saw some men working on
the apartment house next door. He
yelled over to them, explained the
problem and asked if they had a
drop cloth handy. They did and immediately ran over to help.
They made a deal with him: They
would throw the drop cloth over the
woodchuck and hold him down, if
John would pull the peanut butter
jar off of his head.
With only minutes to spare, the
deal was made, the drop cloth was
thrown over the little animal and
one of the workmen grabbed hold
of the woodchuck’s body while John
began to pull and pull, then twist
and twist (yes, twist) until it sud-
denly popped off.
