JUST TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY


While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose  hand was caught in the squeeze 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, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with."

       Best explanation I've heard yet.

  3. Ya know I need to research the post turtle statement. First time I heard it was from that fraud Alex Haley author of "Roots" back in the mid 80's when he was giving a speech. He claimed it as his own but I have since wondered if he didn't grab it from somewhere else.

  4. Wow...Didn't know it had been around that long. Who was Haley referring to when he took credit? I got it in an email yesterday and thought it was funny as I had never heard of a post turtle before.

  5. Oh, if only I was as crooked as Obama, I steal that, put it on MY blog and claim full ownership of it.

    THIS is going to be memorized by yours truly, and repeated - constantly.
