Obama the "Post Turtle" (humor; vanity)
InterWeb

Posted on 10/16/2012 2:32:33 PM PDT by TigerClaws

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 arse put him up there to begin with."

Funny, the first time I heard about post turtles was from Bill Clinton. About 30 years ago.

I am retired from a career in advertising. I consistently see more creativity in writing and graphics here on FR than I ever saw from an ad agency.

Cut off the turtle's head and stand it upside-down to drain. After it has bled well,

Sorry...

Snapping turtle meat costs about $25/pound, so preparing your own is the preferred (translate: cost effective) route. If you can't bring yourself to dispatch your local snapping turtle, you can opt to buy the meat already canned thus saving you from the gruesome task of prepping the turtle...

Boneless Turtle Meat / 1 Lb.

Snappers make great soup, but I don’t know about box turtles.
