When I got a tip today that the "Groundhog" would be posing with Paris Hilton at her signing at Macy's, I just couldn't pass it up. I spoke to the Groundhogs people and they said that the State's mascot did not get any special treatment and had to buy a $55 bottle of "Can Can" like everyone else, then stand in line (for 3 hours), before Paris would pose for a photo.
I was advised by Macy's hired guns that I could only shoot from a position about 30 feet away because technically the "Press" portion of the evening was over and I should have leftAfter waiting what must have seemed like an eternity in the Groundhog suit, the rodent was finally upon Ms HiltonWhen suddenly a voice from across the room shouted at the Groundhogand told him that he could not put on his head piece as it was a security risk and Ms Hilton would not pose with a Groundhog
with that she grabbed his head and gave it to the Groundhog keeper
and Mr Groundhog could only ponder
on what could have been
