While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Julia Gillard [Tony Abbott] being our prime minister.
The old farmer said, "Well, ya know, Julia [Tony] is just a Post Tortoise."
Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked,
What's a "Post Tortoise?"
The old farmer said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a Tortoise balanced on top, that's a post Tortoise."
The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know she [he] didn't get up there by herself [himself], she [he] doesn't belong up there, she [he] doesn't know what to do while she's [he's] up there, she [he] sure as hell isn't goin' anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb bastard put her [him] up there in the first place."
Happy voting folks.
May [insert deity of choice] have mercy on us all.
