Someone sent me the pic and the explanation:
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.”
See? What I usually do. An easy post sitting on top of a complex post. This is the one you feel comfortable responding to.
And the one I’m most likely to be hauled away for. What with being a post turtle myself in the age of new media.
Unless I’m really just a Yertle Turtle…
Tradeoffs. Comments, Ho! Because I’d really like to hear something from y’all.
Even the ones who stand so tall. Busy is the new virtue.
I used to have a vision of the pond myself. Now the pond is a dot in the landscape of my nightmares. Take my advice. Talk to the Yertle.
