pastorpest Absurd in the Land, Too Long in the Bush (91* d) RE: Absurd in the Land, Too Long in the Bush 05 Jul 01


When an American friend e-mailed me the Bush poem "Make the Pie Higher" the following story was included. An old man, around 90 was at the doctor's office to have a laceration stiched up. As the doctor worked they discussed George W's ideas around health care. The old man said that George W was just a post turtle. "What's a post turtle?" asked the doctor.

The old man explained. When you drive down a country road and you see a turtle sitting on a fence post, that is a post turtle. You know he did not get there by himself. You know he does not belong there. He cannot do anything while he is there. And you just want to help the poor thing down.
