Farmer’s Hilarious Definition Of A Politician Is So True It Hurts

It doesn’t matter who we are, we could all use a little bit of wisdom in our lives. When we hear somebody give a truly wise saying, we can use it as a form of direction that can help us to get from where we are to where we want to be. Sometimes, wisdom comes from an expected source but at other times, it may come from someplace that is totally unexpected. In this case, an old man said something that needed to be said but in the end, he did so in a way that will make you smile:

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians 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 beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of fool put him up there to begin with.”
