Julia Gillard is a Post Tortoise

28 02 2011

yeah it’s been a while. admit it, you leaked just a little bit when you saw a new post from me ;)

gotta love my Mum, like many her generation, they still think forwarding jokes via email is a nifty thing to do :)

every once in a while one of these jokes will really get me giggling, like this morning.

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Julia Gillard, and her being our prime minister.

The  old farmer said, “Well, ya know, Julia is just a Post Tortoise.”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked,  “What’s a “Post Tortoise?”

The old farmer replied, “When you’re driving down a  country road and you come across a fence post with a Tortoise balanced on top, that’s a post Tortoise.”

The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know she didn’t get up there by herself, she doesn’t belong up there, she doesn’t know what to do while she’s up there, she sure as hell isn’t goin’ anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb bastard put her up there in the first place.”
