What do you mean mistakenly? We're you trying to pour it on the carpet or something?

Are you sure you didn't get drunk and, you know, have an accident?

I did when I was about 4.

Oh no, just remembered - just about every time I sneezed or laughed after childbirth.

Apparently the same one and he's been around since 1887

"Punxsutawney Phil fans say that there is only one Phil (all the other groundhog weathermen are impostors), and that he has made weather prognostications for over 123 years as of 2013. They say that every summer, Phil is given a sip of the mysterious Groundhog Elixir, which magically lengthens his life for seven years. This is done by Inner Circle members.[5] According to the Groundhog Club, Phil, after making the prediction, speaks to the Club President in "Groundhogese", which only the current president can understand, and then his prediction is translated for the entire world."
