The Thong Cyclist–Austin’s Punxsutawney Phil–Forecasts an Early Spring

Some of us in Austin think this is stupid and kind of ugly. Put some clothes on dude. Do you think you are Lance Armstrong or something (Leslie Cochran)?  In Austin this guy could run for mayor and win.

Every year on the 2nd of February, known as Groundhog’s Day, people across the country turn their eyes to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, eagerly awaiting the emergence of a small rodent named Punxsutawney Phil. Legend states that if the groundhog sees his shadow, winter will last 6 more weeks. And if he doesn’t see his shadow, spring will come early. This weekend, Phil forecasted an early spring.

But we do things a little differently in Austin. Here, runners on Town Lake and drivers on North Lamar measure the return of spring by the emergence of another legendary creature, the Thong Guy. Wearing nothing but a g-string and a welcoming smile, Thong Guy was spotted this weekend, indicating an early spring.
So there ya have it, folks. Break out the bikes, bathing suits, and beers. Spring is here.
