Also look at this photo of Phil that makes him look like a holy Simba sent from the heavens to bless Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.

Oh, and here’s Lupita Nyong’o trying to figure why the hell we have a tradition where a group of men in top hats hover around a rodent in hopes that it’ll predict the weather.
