Politicians = "post turtles", sez wise old farmer

Time for a Sunday funny, courtesy of Agent 6...

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old farmer 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 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 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."

Seeing the puzzled look on the doctor's face, the old farmer went on 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 idiot put him up there to begin with."

Agent 6 says that's the best definition of a politician he's ever heard!
