Post Turtles

This comment over at Guido Fawkes' blog just tickled me...

"While suturing a laceration on the hand of a 90-year-old man, the doctor asked his patient how he thought Gordon Brown was doing as Prime Minister.

The old man said, "You know, Brown is a post turtle." Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a "post turtle" was.

He said, "Did you ever drive down a country road and come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top? You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor thing down. That's a post turtle."

sorry, off topic, but I found this is too funny not to post, from a 70s american sitcom called 'Good Times':

"you may give the whole system away..."

I don't know which sick fuck is putting turtles up on posts but he/she deserves to be shot and put on a post.

What's that slithering up the turtle's greasy post?
