Daily Joke: Politicians are like ‘post turtles’

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working on cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually, the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians are “Post Turtles”.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what “a post turtle” was.

The old man 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 farmer saw a 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’s elevated above his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb idiot put him up there, to begin with!”.
