While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old California rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Nancy Pelosi and her elevation to speaker of the house. The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Nancy is a post turtle.”
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher 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 man saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain.
“You know she didn’t get there by herself, she doesn’t belong there, she doesn’t know what to do while she’s up there, and you just want to help the dumb thing get down.”
