While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old ‘livestock specialist’, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while looking after black bellied sheep, the doctor at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Freundel Stuart and his role as our Prime Minister.
The old man said, “Well, ya know doctor… Stuart is a Post Turtle.”
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘post turtle’ was.
The old man said, “When you’re driving along a road up near Grape Hall and you come across a fence post with a land turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle.”
The old man 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, 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 ass put him up there to begin with. It was all an accident, and not meant to be!”
Best explanation I’ve heard yet.
(Our thanks to an old friend!)
