Overheard while I was in the hairdressers shop today;

A customer was chatting about politics to her hairdresser.
She said "most politicians are post tortoises you know".

"What does that mean ?" the hairdresser replied.

"Well, when you are driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top -that's a post tortoise".

The hairdresser looked puzzled so the customer went on 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 wonder what kind of jackass put him up there to begin with".
