Jeff Permar a Middletown, Delaware gardener wanted to grow his own food in his own garden. He was a very conscious and conscientious gardener following the latest technology and guidelines to get the best crops with the least amount of his sweat. One day, Jeff noticed that his precious produce was being abused. The fruit was being carried away or being bitten and abandoned. Determined to catch the culprit, Jeff set up a trail camera in his garden. “Then while I was at work, I got a notification on my phone and out pops up this groundhog and it was the cutest thing ever, staring into the camera, through your soul with so much swagger,” explained Permar, who was amazed by the garden squatter. He captured a picture of the culprit, a ground hog. Jeff initially tried various methods to keep “Chunk” away, including raising the height of the fence and placing logs around it to prevent digging. Being an organic guy he did not want to leg trap or poison the critter. However, Chunk’s determination and charm won him over, and Jeff decided to embrace his presence.
As Jeff delved deeper into the mystery, he realized that the thief was not just any groundhog, but a charismatic creature with a flair for the camera. This groundhog, who earned the affectionate nickname “Chunk,” seemed to enjoy his moments of fame. Typically, he stands boldly in front of the camera, munching leisurely and defiantly on the stolen bounty. This makes us question whether Chunk knows exactly what he’s doing? What he discovered was beyond his wildest expectations – a cheeky groundhog with a penchant for fresh produce and star-quality video. Jeff decided under the emotional circumstances rather than fight they would cooperate. This cheeky groundhog has not only stolen vegetables from Jeff Permar’s garden, but also the hearts of netizens globally. His daily escapades are chronicled on his very own YouTube channel, where fans eagerly await his newest adventures. Moreover, Chunk’s Facebook page has become a hub for groundhog enthusiasts, amassing over 200,000 followers who delight in his gardenly adventures.
As time went by, Jeff’s initial frustration transformed into a deep affection for Chunk and his family. Through his daily adventures, Chunk has brought joy and laughter to people around the world, proving that sometimes, the simplest stories can have the most profound impact. He never expected Chunk’s fame to soar like it has — one day, gifts for the viral woodchucks began showing up on Permar’s doorstep. The Chunks’ picnic table, he said, was gifted by a woman who makes miniature tables. Jeff even plans to build a separate special garden for the groundhogs next year, acknowledging that they, too, have a right to enjoy the land.
Smile when you munch that
Has anyone played that weird Mexican carnival game where groundhogs pop out of holes and you have to smear them with avocado?
I really suck at Guac-a-mole.
Which animal takes up the most square feet?
Can’t believe the film Groundhog Day came out 30 years ago….
It feels like yesterday.
I wanna tell you a joke about a girl who only eats plants.
You’ve probably never heard of herbivore.
“My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.”
