A Clemson University study shows that people will actually swerve to squash turtles trying to cross the road.

Maybe the little guys would be safer hitching a ride with that chicken everyone’s always asking about.

    They should make it a “turtle free zone,” then the turtles won’t cross there.

    I have stopped and carried turtles the rest of the way ‘cross the road many times. Lots of folks like to kill turtles because they eat fingerling fish. I don’t much care for fish so it doesn’t bother me. Now if turtles ate chubby girls with low morals I’d run over ‘em too.

    So, that’s why the stupid surface levels of the NES Ninja Turtles game were so hard.

    Here in Alaska we don’t have turtles to run over so we run over these guy’s instead…doesn’t always work out well though. http://alaskahunt.blogspot.com/2007/05/650-alaska-moose-killed-in-vehicle.html

    Q. Why did the punk rocker cross the road?

    A. Because he was stapled to a chicken.

    Guess who got the bill for that study

    Turtles have such a deilghtful crunch when you hit them – like a bicycle helmet, only without the lawsuit.

    So just about the same time the University of Maryland does a slow scamper to the Big Ten?

    Because yesterday he saw some lettuce over there?
