Punxsutawney, Penn., has done a pretty good job of capitalizing on its most famous resident, Punxsutawney Phil. The town has positioned itself as the go-to for whenever you want to get weather predictions from a mute rat.

But into the world of meteorologically gifted animals has stepped an interloper. Meet Mr. Prozac, a llama in Oxford, Mich., who supposedly can predict the weather as well.

A llama?! Sorry, Oxford, but I'm not gonna buy it. This is America, Oxford. We take our coffee black, our pie apple, our racing NASCAR, and our weather-predicting animals glirine. (Look it up.)
