While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old ringer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old bloke.

Eventually the topic got around to Julia Gillard and her role as our prime minister. The old ringer said, “Well, ya know mate, Julia is a Post Turtle”.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘Post Turtle’ was.

The old ringer 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 ringer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know she didn’t get up there by herself, she doesn’t belong up there, she doesn’t know what to do while she’s up there, she’s elevated beyond her ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of idiot put her up there to begin with.”

(Brilliant. Couldn’t have thought of a better way to put it in a thousand years of trying – BB).
