A Post Turtle

I got this as a forwarded email. I usually just delete them, but this one I just couldn't bring myself to trash.

It's not the most clever humor ever, but, well, you decide.

A 70-year-old Texas rancher got his hand caught in a gate while working cattle. He wrapped the hand in his bandana and drove his pickup to the doctor. While suturing the laceration, the doctor brought up the subject of George W. Bush's rapidly declining political fortunes.

The old Texan replied, "Well, ya know, Bush is a Post Turtle."

Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked what a Post Turtle was.

The old man looked at him and drawled, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fencepost with a turtle balanced on top, that's a Post Turtle."

The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain:

"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 dumb bastard get down."
