Kerry, The Post Turtle.


While stitching up a laceration on the hand of a 70-year-old Massachusetts business Tycoon (whose hand had been caught in a fence while working at his country home), the doctor and the old man were talking about Senator John Kerry possibly being in the White House one day.

The old Tycoon said, "Well, ya know, Kerry is a 'post turtle'."

Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old man 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 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 stupid thing get down.


  1. :) I'll have to remember that one.

  2. LOL That is so funny, and so true.

  3. That sure fits Kerry!

  4. "Turtle on a Fence Post" was a book written by Author C. Emery in 1979 (Forward by Billy Graham), in which he used the image to describe God's control and purpose over our lives. Mr. Emery was wonderful Christian man who attended my church when I was a child.

    And yeah, and also fits Kerry too!
