    wanna be an MP?

    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 Tortoises'.''

    Not being familiar with the term,
    the doctor asked him what a 'post tortoise' was.

    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 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 dumb idiot put him up there to begin with."
