Post Turtles

A friend of mine sent this to me in an email. couldn’t resist putting it on here!

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old
Texas rancher, whose
hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the
doctor struck up a
conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic
got around to
Obama and his bid to be 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 a 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 is up there.
And you just wonder what kind of a dumb @**
put him up there!”
