I call Turtle Meme!
I get a ton of jokes from relatives in my inbox every day. I guess it’s proof that they love me.
Most of the jokes are nonsense or stupid or just plain bad. And mostly, they’re the send-this-to-nine-people-in-nine-minutes-or-else-you-will-will-die-a-painful-death variety… or something like that.
Maybe all the emails are proof that they hate me.
Anyway, one cousin sent something that’s hilarious! It’s probably old. But it’s new to me. So I’m passing it on:
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose 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 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 on 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 what a post turtle was: ‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, and 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’.
