An albino groundhog who lived in Wiarton, Ontario, famed for prognosticating the end of winter on Groundhog Day. Found in an advanced state of decomposition in February of 1999, Wiarton Willie was was given a grand funeral wherein a plush toy stood in for his body. A replacement (Wee Willie) was later sought out, and a limited edition Beanie Baby was released. A statue of Willie, situated in a harbourside park in Wiarton, is said to look like an erect penis from the harbour. The entire history of Wiarton Willie is doused in oddity and shenanigans.
I went down to the harbour to see that statue of Wiarton Willie; yeah, I see what you're talking about.
