Post Turtle

Postby Your Hero Jed » Mon Aug 10, 2009 2:04 pm

Received this email today. Thought it was pretty funny.

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be 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, and he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb a** put him up there to begin with'.
Fresh out of batteries, but we're still making noise.Image

Government controlled health care will probably determine that you can live just fine on dialysis and don't need a new kidney.

that's all I'm gonna say about that.

You may be right Hakko.
Myself, I think we have the technology to clone myself a new kidney, and for both cost and medical reasons that would be the best route to go.
But it won't happen in my life time.
