Post Turtle

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our president.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is just a Post Turtle."

Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, "What's a 'Post Turtle'?"

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 sure as heck ain't goin' anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place."

Thanks to my Aunt for sending this one...

That last one is the biggie: what kind of dumbasses put this idiot there, and what kind of idiocy are these guys going to do to our country down the road?

Have any of them learned their lesson?

That's a good one, Sol. It's going over to the TCL Facebook page to share with the members.
There's a lot of buyers remorse going on from those who put that turtle on the post.

The same could be said for most of the idiots in DC along with the Chosen One.

It's time for them to go.

Just for the record, a nerdy clarifcation on the turtle on the post: the common name for this particular species show above is the 'Eastern Painted Turtle,' and it is technically not a turtle, but rather a terrapin. This particular terrapin shown is a female. Males have longer claws on their front feet.

What's the difference between turtles and terrapins, you ask? Turtles are salt water animals, terrapins are found in fresh water, and tortoises are land critters, although we all lump them into one category, 'tutles.'

How come your eyes are glazing over?

I will have to remember this's the perfect analogy for explaining SnowBama's presidency!

This is a joke that just keeps giving. When I first heard it, it was about Hillary. Through these times, we conservatives can still laugh.
