Post Turtle

While suturing a laceration on the hand of an 80-year-old, grizzled, West Texas Cowboy (whose hand had gotten caught in a gate, while working cattle), a doctor and the old man were talking about John Kerry's possibility of being in the White House.

The old Texan said, "Well, ya know, Kerry's just one of them 'Ole Post Turtles'."

Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was. The old man said, "Well, when you're driving down the road, and you come across a fence post 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.... you know he
doesn't belong there.... you know he can't get anything done while he's up there.... and you just want to help the poor sumbitch get down 'afore he hurts hisself."
