    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 a ‘Post Tortoise’.”

    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.</span></p>
