Why did the turtle cross the road?

I'll take a leaf from Mark and invite people to submit answers to the joke. Winner gets a postcard from Sharon. Snapping turtles are laying eggs this time of year, and for some reason often feel compelled to cross busy roads to find a nice spot. We're told we can just pick them up, move them to the other side (in the direction they were traveling - don't put them back where they started or they'll just go again.) I tried to pick this guy up but he started wiggling and thrashing so much I didn't have the courage to take him all the way, even though I knew he couldn't hurt me. Posted by Picasa

Just because she has green boots she thinks she one of us. Wait till I get my teeth into those boots, that'll show them to leave me alone.

The turtle is thinking "Where is a boy scout when you need one?"

"The grass is always greener on the other side..." ;). Wow, it must have been quite old with all the moss in its back.

Q: Why did the turtle cross the road?

A: Because he wanted to catch the uptown bus...

(OK, I know, I'm really bad at this, lol!)

"Because its a shorter path to cross the road rather then walk on the road"

oh myyyy - I wonder how heavy this thing is? We have ocean turtles (Honu) but to see a land faring creature is awesome!

I forgot to mention - the answer to why the turtle crossed the road: "it is pretending to cross the road so someone will pick it up and give it a free ride" :P

Thanks for the great entries - see today (Monday's) post for the winner.
Kris, yes, I did do it - I was inspired by Wilf's blog (Realdailyphoto.) It took a few tries to get it right and I'm sure I'll keep tinkering with it.
