So THAT'S a Post Turtle

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher
whose hand was caught in a gate while working with cattle,
the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually,
the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her bid to to be a heartbeat
away from being President.

The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Palin 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.”

He continued, “You know she didn’t get up there by herself, she doesn’t
belong up there, she doesn’t know what to do while she is up there, if she
tries to make a move she’ll fall down hard, and you just wonder what kind
of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.”
