Post Turtle

the old rancher

Received: 02Nov2009

A doctor struck up a conversation with a hard-working 75 year old rancher while suturing a mean cut on the old man's leathery hand. Eventually the topic got around to Obama. The old rancher said, "Well, you know, Obama is a 'post turtle.'" Unfamiliar with the term, the doctor asked him what he meant. The old rancher replied, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle.'"

Let Me Explain

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued:

  • "You know he didn't get up there by himself,
  • he doesn't belong up there,
  • he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, and
  • you just wonder what kind of complete moron put him up there to begin with."
