Wiarton Willie--Schmillie...Beyond The Shadow Of A Doubt
Wiarton Willie hasn't made a prediction from Wiarton in years. The people of Wiarton have been pulling the wool (fur) over our eyes and nobody has called them out on it.The real Wiarton Willie just couldn't take it anymore. Some say the pressure of having to be right all the time just got to him. Others insist he wanted more money than Wiarton was prepared to pay. Still others say that he was forced to fake his own death (no doubt he collected the insurance money) and took off for parts unknown.
The truth of the matter is, he has been spotted in the Caribbean by a reliable source, ultimately, he did what most of us would if we could--moved south for the winter where it's always sunny. So you know what that means? It's six more weeks of crappy weather no matter how you look at it.
The footage you see on TV isn’t the real Willie.There are rumours that the television networks worked with the town of Wiarton, chose a new Willie, and the real Willie has been eating cheese burgers in paradise ever since.
But anyway, win or lose on the 6 more weeks of winter scenario, if we're healthy we've got it made. So never mind that Willie's in a warm climate “chilling” for real at an all inclusive... just try to be nice to someone you love...be nice to a stranger...be nice to yourself.
And in six weeks? We'll do what all Canadians do at that time...hope that it's spring.
