The Post Turtle

This is one of those emails that has been everywhere and everyone has already seen except a few of you and that is what this post is for — those few of you who like me missed it when it first went around the block…

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, 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 Presidency. 

The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, he’s 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 there to begin with.   All ya really know is ya gotta help take him down …”
