Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''..

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, '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'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. '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 dumb ass put him up there to begin with.'

I know of a way to get a post turtle off of the post....It uses a few grams of smokeless gun powder, a lead projectile, and a cylindrical object from which the projectile is propelled.

Ha, ha, ha . . . waaaaah! This is so true! : (

I'm back and I just got all caught up with your witty/amusing postings. I feel like I've gotten a good work out -- laughter is the BEST medicine.

Thanks friend! XO!

Phil, your dad could probably do that, but he'd rather it be a cat than a turtle!

Debbie, welcome back. I hope your trip to Hawaii accomplished all you wanted it to! We've missed you!
