While stitching up the cut on the hand of a 76 year-old farmer who got his hand caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with him.
Eventually the conversation got around to politicians, and their role as our leaders.
The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most of them are ‘post turtles’.”
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. He’s elevated above his ability to function, and you wonder what kind of asshole put him up there.
So there are these four men on a cruise ship, a Jamaican, a Russian, a Mexican-American, and an American.
One night these four men are on the deck of the ship.
The American guy walks up to the Jamaican guy, who takes out a huge smack of weed, and some paper and rolls this massive joint. He lights it up, puts it to his lips, takes one puff and throws it over the side. The American says “What are you doing?? Do you know how much that stuff in worth stateside?”
He says “Yeah mon, but in Jamaica we got so much of the stuff, it got no value, mon, worthless.”
The American guy walks away, and walks over to the Russian guy. He takes out a huge bottle of Absolut, takes the cap off, takes a sip and tosses it over the side, into the seas. The American says “What are you doing?? Do you know how much that stuff in worth in the States?”
He says “Yes but in ‘lussian, we got so much ‘wodka, it got no value. What you say, i’s worthless.”
So the American turns away. He then walks up to the Mexican-American.
He throws him overboard.
A group of Arab terrorists burst into the conference room at the Ramada Hotel where the American Bar Association was holding its Annual Convention. More than a hundred lawyers were taken as hostages.
The terrorist leader announced that, unless their demands were met, they would release one lawyer every hour.
How dare you drive the speed limit when I’m late for something due to my own poor time management skills?
Two guys are drinking in a bar.
They pull out the sandwiches their wives had lovingly prepared, and tuck in. The bartender comes over and says “You can’t eat your own food in here.” so they swapped sandwiches.
