Post Turtle – another topical joke

Jun 24, 2010 3 Comments by


While  sewing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Aussie farmer,  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 Kevin Rudd and his role as our Prime  Minister.

The  old farmer said, ‘Well, you know, in my opinion, Rudd is a  ‘Post Turtle”.

Not  being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a  ‘post turtle’ was.

The  old farmer 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 farmer 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, and  you just wonder what kind of dumb bugger put him up there to  begin with.

    Hello people,

    This is a story that I find amusing everytime I read:

    A man received a parrot for his birthday. This parrot was fully-grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren’t expletives were, to say the least, extremely rude.
    The man tried hard to change the bird’s attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything that came to mind.
    Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird, the bird got worse. He went to a voodoo spell caster to cast a love spell on it, with no luck.
    He shook the bird and the bird got more angry and exceedingly rude.
    Finally, in a moment of desperation, he put the parrot in the freezer.
    For a few moments he heard the bird squawking, kicking and screaming and then, suddenly, all was quiet.
    The man was frightened that he might have actually hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto the man’s extended arm and said: “I’m sorry that I offended you with my language and actions. I ask for your forgiveness. I will try to improve my behavior.”
    The man was astounded at the bird’s change in attitude and was about to ask what changed him when the parrot continued, “…May I ask what the chicken did?”

    James – I agree and the basic lack of consultation…
