Hey, only 4 weeks left in the life of this federal Parliament - MPs will then escape Ottawa for home and their endless campaigning on the summer bbq circuit. That will be followed up with more campaigning through September and October...  


To take all this electioneering in stride, we suggest you laugh it off - enjoy the sidebar comments and humour that comes along with the political rhetoric. And, the By George Journal will do it's part - starting with this missive. Regularly check our Journal's jokes, follow our FB page and Twitter for your political humour fix - and enjoy the campaign about to unfold.     


Have you heard the one about...
The Post Turtle  

At a stop in Regina, a CBC reporter scanned the crowd of a Liberal rally for a possible interview. She decided to speak with an older farmer who was observing the events with some amusement. They spoke about Leader Justin Trudeau and the possibility of him being in 24 Sussex Drive in a matter of weeks.

The old gentleman said, "Well, ya know, Trudeau is a `post turtle'."


Not comprehending what the old man meant, the reporter asked him what a post turtle is. He said, "When you're driving down a prairie dirt road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's post turtle."

The farmer saw a puzzled look on the reporter's face, so he continued to explain, "You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, he doesn't know what he's going to do next, and you just want to help the poor bastard to get down."


This joke is one of the "5 Favourite, Perfect Jokes to Start" in the e-book - Keep 'em Laughing - a collection of classic political jokes.
