    It means that Hurricane Hattie will come up with some lame answer to the question.

    Phil is facing East, the rising sun is blinding him. Since he’s facing the wrong direction, Phil’s shadow is behind him.

    Scientifically it means and proves nothing, teacher. You should know that, being a teacher. Hattie indeed does have the correct answer.

    Her school has a no hats rule. Our office had the same rule, but we embraced diversity, until one of our employees wanted to wear a hat. Then the showdown, corporate rules won, and she quit shortly thereafter.

    Hattie is either sarcastic or really good at “sight” gags.

    That’ll teach the Teacher not to call on Hatie for the answers. You’d think she would have learned by now.

    “And when it’s twelve o’clock,

    we climb the stair

    We never knock,

    for nobody’s there

    Just me and my shadow

    Strolling down the avenue

    All alone and feeling blue”

    ― Pearl Bailey ⁽ ᵉᵗ ᵃˡ ⁾

    Hattie is well named since she is a perfect example of the saying regarding an ill wind, she’s the Hurricane that doesn’t blows any good.

    But the groundhog did see his shadow, so the teacher is basing her question on an incorrect premise.

    Yes, I know this strip was probably written weeks before the actual Groundhog Day, so no one knew whether that dumb rodent would see his shadow, but that problem could easily have been handled by writing the dialog in the conditional. “Class, who can tell me what it means if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow today?”
