A friend sent this along last evening, and I HAVE to share...
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 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, 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'.

Yup. That's about as accurate a description as I've yet to hear or see. I'm thinking this one will spread like wildfire. Or already has... seeing as how it's about Candidate Obama. New to me, tho.


  1. Why someone would put a turtle on a post...

    But there is wisdom in describing the current resident of 1600 Pensylvania Ave, thusly.

  2. Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

  3. I'm loving it. Gonna steal it right now and email it to a gazillion folks.

    The picture is priceless!

  4. Love it, it's just perfect. The fact that it describes the candidate doesn't seem to matter - he still is campaigning after all.

  5. Gotta love good ol' country way of looking at things.

    One of my favorites: You know that white speck on top of chicken shit? Well, that speck is chicken shit, too.

  6. That is by far the most accurate description of the current occupant of the White House I have seen yet.

  7. Here's the picture.

  8. Thank ya, all. And Morgan... good stuff never dies, it just keeps circulating via e-mail. ;-)

  9. posting a link to this on

  10. Thanks for the link, MJ.

  11. Excellent. It captures the current situation perfectly.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
