The voice in my head that read this sounded reaaaaaaally stoned.
ha yeah I did too.
me too! I immediately thought of finding nemo and the voice sounded like the turtle from that movie.
OP was probably stoned when he wrote this, but look, it got POTD. This just proves I need to write more posts while taking drugs.
This reminded me of the turtles from Finding Nemo.
Turtles have been my favorite animals for a long time, but until now, I could never put into words why. Thank you.
I have to say, I burst out laughing when I saw the title
Why do I feel like you nicked this from someone/somewhere? :/
This dude "swears" they didn't copy it from anywhere, yet it is a word for word exact match with a facebook group i recently liked. what a coincidence..
Just looked it up and the page was created in 2010.
It's from Mitch Hedberg. He did a similar joke on frogs talking about the forest fire representative in england being better than the bear. 'Frogs are always cool' etc etc
I was like "Wow this really sounds like Mitch Hedburg" and I'm really glad you said that.
my life is bro had it on
Not that I could find when I searched it
It has the air of being previously posted to me, but that might just be, well, me XD
It's not just you. I feel like it's from something...
I'm tellin you dude, I checked this shit like 45 times. I didn't copy it from anywhere. Damn, bitches all up on my jaun and shit
I wasn't saying you stole it, it just sounds familiar and I can't place it.
I was thinking it sounded familiar too. IMO it sounds like something Demetri Martin would say. Not saying that it was stolen though, but it does remind me of him an awful lot.
that kid with the face paint that was like "i like turtles"
That kid was sweet.
It sounds like something my friend would say. When I read this, I heard her voice saying this. That's why it sounds familiar to me.
To which you will respond: cool story bro. Tell it AGAIN. Tell it ata PARTY. You'll get laid.
No, he stole it.
I've seen this shit all over Facebook Like sites more than many months ago.
But its new to the site so congrats :D
yo duuuudeesss chill lil man, its from my name is earl can tell you that straight up
I guarantee you stole it
You stole it. I wrote that exact same thing about four months ago, and was accused of stealing it. Then it was removed. You totally stole it. Even if you didn't steal it from a post on here, you still stole it from another site.
it's from Facebook!!!!!!!!!!
RayWilliamJohnson, possibly? He did an episode on turtles.
It was definitely on facebook, but idk, maybe it was on here first.
A lot of people have the same opinion on turtles. At least 2600 of them do, atm. Can people stop bitching about every post? Minds think alike. You're subconsciously jealous that this got POTD. You think your posts are so much deserving than this one. Just shut up and enjoy the post!
(Seriously.): Yeah i kow right!!!?? they are just sour they don't have POTD.
Chill. Like seriously, chill. I think this is a good post of the day, and I even admitted that it might have been posted on here before it was posted (word for word, by the way, so it's not a coincidence) on facebook. Relax, I'm not bashing the post of the day. People were wondering if they'd seen if before, and I mentioned that I had seen it too.
That wasn't directed towards you specifically, but everyone in that little conversation about how he stole it. I don't need to relax. I used exclamation points and it came off the wrong way to you.
I'm steamed because I wrote this on here word for word a few months ago, and it was removed because it had been posted before.
On the first day of kindergarten, I saw this kid and thought he looked like a turtle.
Duuude, I have a friend who looks turtle-ish. Cool fuckin kid.
Omg I have friends who look like mice. They look pretty cute though lol
And I have friends who are mice! After doing some experiments on them I realized that they were the superior life-form and that they were actually testing ON ME! Who would've guessed?! And also, they Earth is just a machine to find the question of life after we already know the answer, which is OBVIOUSLY 42.
@1288111 (Albert_Einstein): HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.
Good job, you have successfully proven you can read!
yeah, i wasn't sure up to that point so i gave myself a little pat on the back when i recognized something.
They're like the Bob Marley's of the animal kingdom.
Dude, turtles with dreads. That'd be fantastic
If I ever saw that I'd cry tears of happiness. Then commit myself to a drug rehab cuz they'd be singing reggae as well.
They have turtles that sing reggae......dude....lead teh way....
How am i supposed to get comment loves now? Nobody reads the comments at the bottom of the page.
Thanks for calling me nobody :(
Nobody shut up.
(don't worry, that was just an attempt to get loves without actually trying)
Nice try, but I can read phrases even if they are enclosed in parentheses!
IS THIS THE BEST YOU CAN DO? I am the ALMIGHTY Chauncy Pickles! Fear my AMIMIGHT!
You have two already. Impressive.
My tortoise used to sneak up on me when I was sitting and try to bite my toes.
I like you.
Thank yoooou. Let's be friends.
This post is fucking all over the internet now. I'm just gonna point out that I didn't copy it, it was here before it was anywhere else. I'm glad everyone loved it so much.
Yeeeeaah go amirite power.
I believe you Fred! xD I googled it after you put it and there was just this post!! (Even though now even a couple of friends have this as theirs statuses)
I don't see why this post is targeted in the war against reposts and stolen posts when there are 5000 other stolen
posts out there too...
oh yeah, turtles are awesome :) simple life is the way to go, man.
PS: I'm glad you're not dead yet, FredWeasley
turtles have been my favourite animal for ever! also am i the only one who read this in a really stoned voice? i kind of have the feeling the op was flying high when they wrote this.
Because he is haha
Turtles, dude... Now I wana be a turtle... Sounds like fun... Swimmin around... Eatin lettuce...
I hate the person who made this because they are directly responsible for all those idiotic facebook pages copying this and changing it around for basically everything. sorry about that OP.
There's an ad at the bottom of this page advertising beautiful turtle cages. I might just click on it, because I fucking love turtles. And your post.
All of these comments are people trying to find this as a repost, yet nobody has succeeded. Congrats, Mr. FredWeasly, you have the first amazing yet original post I've ever seen.
I think if the World were an animal kingdom, the Canadians would be the turtles. Or maybe the Jamaicans.
It's impossible not to make the connection. :) I'll be talking and in my head I'm like, "Turtle, turtle, turtle...eh?"
From now on, everyone must vote "I like turtles" on this post. No exceptions.
It was an April Fool's Joke after all :(
I know people hate reposts but never have I seen more than 100 comments focused on finding out if a post was a repost. That's a little...obsessive.
OMG geyest POTD ever, is there some way we can fire Conor?
It's not his fault. Conor's been doing a lot of marijuana and he felt this post was fit.
Fit means sexy in British talk
So does Chauncy.
No, you have to say "gey" or else it's offensive.
"g" commonly makes a "j" sound when followed by the letters "i" or "e", but that is usually when "g" is also preceded by another vowel.
I was scuba diving once, and I thought this turtle was gonna bite my nose off. Nope; he just swam past the distressed me and ate some coral. Om nom nom.
What is the point in commenting on the POTD when it's already received so much recognition?
your name makes me hungry
Isn't Fred Weasley supposed to like owls or rats or something instead? Wait, isn't Fred supposed to be dead?
I believed you, but I googled this purely out of curiosity and this was already out there, in various places with dates prior to this post.
I wouldn't care normally, but the fact you kept insisting you made it up and it miraculously spread around so fast kinda irks me. It was pretty unlikely, anyways. As popular as this site is, it's not THAT popular. In comparison to other sites, it's not some huge well-known thing.
Please, show me the sites with the dates prior to this. I'd like to see them.
All you have to do is google it; don't act dumb, please.
Yeah so I googled it...none of them were before mine. But if you wanna find one for me go for it.
damn. Idk, must've misread what it said on the iPod mobile google thing, because when I actually opened the links it was just someones signature, so obviously it just updated to older posts or whatever on the sites that showed up.
You have permission to call me whatever you want, because I for one feel rather stupid. :B
rock on weasleyz
You have never met the turtles my science teacher keeps in her classroom. they.are evil.
The fact that he was high when he posted this only increases my respect for this dude. Well played, good sir.
When you post while high you apparently either get ramblings about the futer or sheer awesomeness on the subject of turtles, and either way you get POTD. Clearly I need to start smoking.
I swear to whatever higher power exists, I was thinking the exact same thing.
I guess you haven't heard... http://www.clickorlando.com/new...53/detail.html
Very, very sad.
His fault for goin out to tag them. People gotta leave turtles alooone man. They're not botherin you, don't bother them.
And how about all of these poor souls who had no idea what was about to happen? http://www.lakejacksonturtles.org/accident.htm
Also very, very sad.
Look, I'm not going to read all of that. I'm just going to assume that it's a bunch of stories about turtle-related atrocities. But this post obviously can't speak for all turtles. Humans have done some prettttttty fucked up shit, but a majority of us aren't really bad people. Same goes for turtles, dude.
Oh hey, I agree with you. There are some awesome turtles out there. Those sites are just being very specific. I was just trying to point out those scary turtle incidents. Because they happen. But anyways, I'd side with the good turtles any day. It's not like it was participially their fault. Haha :)
Every post with turtles in it is dated after mine. Try again pl0x
Everyone saying I copied it:
Find one where it was posted before mine. I dare you. That is all.
"Dude, she called you a-" "You know what? I don't care, cause I'm a turtle."
This question with the same saying was asked 6 months ago. I understand 6 months ago would have been January 14th, but I find it hard to believe this would have been spread around the web that quickly. Unless of course the person asking the question was asking after reading this post.. Who knows. So I guess just ignore this post, because it has no proof. Paaayyyccee.
I find all these post about stating which turtles in particular retarded. It's a quote designed for pure comedic purposes. Not some fact filled learning quote.
You could specify which turtles, if you wanted to kill the whole thing in cold blood.
I read this is in the funniest dopiest sounding turtle voice ever xD
Must have been a lot of strangely pronounced words...what happened to her anyway?
smoke weed er' day.
Totally sounds like something from Mitch Hedberg.
Zombie Kid? Is that you?
Well, all of that ^^ sort of made me sad. I loved this and put it as my status on Facebook. Turtles are freaking awesome.
Damn buddy! You have some nerve telling me that "No ones ever pointed this out before." on my Bruno Mars post. While you can't prove that I am or am not the first to DISCOVER that his eyes were open. But you, you take a quote straight from the mouth of Mitch Hedberg. You're really sharp, sir.
Sorry this is so late but I just saw this and I'm upset by your sarcastic attitude. So here's the Mitch Hedberg joke you're thinking of:
frogs are always cool. Never has there been a frog hopping toward me, and I thought, "Man, here comes that frog...I'd better play dead." You never say, "Here comes that frog" in a terrified manner. It's always optimistic, like, "Hey, here comes that frog, all right.
What part did I copy?
That was so clever man, really I've never seen that one before that was great. You're a real character
i just had to come to this post...
Apparently OP was high when he made this, yet not a single person referenced Owl City's "Fireflies". Astounding.
(Chauncy Pickles): A fox trot above my head, a sock hop beneath my bed, a disco ball is just hanging by a thread...
Okay, there. Someone referenced it.
Also I meant that no one made a comparison between this post and the aformentioned song as both are popular and were made while someone was under the influence of drugs.
Wow... I thought this was already a potd. Deja vu I guess :P
I feel like i read this a while ago...cause i remember the name FredWeasley and thought it was a clever username. Also, i agreed that the turtle post was pretty chill.
Reading this makes me want a BLT that much more.
This is definitely Mitch Hedberg
Oh wurrrd? Prove it.
Holy shit, post of the day man. Rad
Your post started out as PotD with more votes than most other PotD's ever had. Surely this must be some form of record.
i like turtles
I packed my bags before finishing reading this post
Am I the only one who reads this in a voice like Crush from Finding Nemo?
Ummm I'm obviously not talking about snapping turtles?
You're so right, I have no idea what I was thinking
Turtles are my favorite animal.
i like turtles.
I <3 TURTLE!!!!!
I agree wholeheartedly.
A turtle bit me on the boob once. Fuck that, it won;t hurt me -_-
I have one.
this is a copy....not fair so many of my post have been removed just because they are old sayings and this post that is everywhere is still here, I LOVE TURTLES maybe its just the first time in this website so WAY TO GO DUDE dont care so FTW!!!
No it isn't...>.>
tis', someone even posted a link for it
I can't help but think that you're the same person who created the facebook page after I posted this, seeing as all the comments sayin I copied it are from an anonymous person.
oh my god this is such a repeat. if you type it into google it is word for word copied.
and you really expect me to believe it was a coincidence?
Was this on facebook before or after it was on this site?
I LOVE turtles!!!!!! They are like the best ever!!
tosh.0 with turtle kid
I guess we can't really say you aren't right, considering you're telling us that you like them...
Haha, wouldn't that be funny if someone said that, though?
I honestly don't get this...?
Has anyone said, it was mitch hedberg that said this first?
If you'd hit ctrl + F and typed in Mitch Hedberg, you'd realize that it has been stated.
Now that that's out of the way, Mitch Hedberg's joke has nothing to do with this post.
way to be a dick :D
Way to not read the comments.
And then they played some lax and drank a natty lite.
No. Then they ate some fucking lettuce and went for a swim. MLINB
Then they saw another turtle in a banana suit riding a unicycle. Best. Day. Ever.
What does that say? My life is what? I'm horrible with acronyms.
My life is not bro
Oh OK thanks :)
I'm not sure why but this facebook group/post really pisses me off every time I read it.
dude...I totally made this up. no joke. literally. I made it a facebook like...and it was one of the most popular...>:(
congratulations nobody cares
LMFAO! YOU'RE SO STUPID I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE HOW YOU FOUND THE SHORTCUT TO THE INTERNET ON YOUR DESKTOP.
If you would kindly check the date of this post, you shall see that this was posted in JANUARY. That means that all those other pages came from HERE. Do you understand, you unsophisticated squirrel?
Alligator snapping turtles have the second strongest bite force of any animal alive. They'll hurt the absolute FUCK out of you if you get near them.
...We covered the snapping turtle topic earlier. Not the kind of turtle I was talking about at all.
I used proper grammar to get my point across, as well as using facts and clarifications. They do give a good point, though, about specifying. Just saying "turtles" impies every animal that can be classified under the umbrella term of "turtle". We're not psychic.
Dude, I am too goood damn high to handle your shit right now. I guess I'm sorry, hop off pl0x.
I understand. I remember once, the triple Os in the phrase "don't know how" was freaking me out.
I will, in fact, hop off.
i think you might be referring to tortoises, since turtles are actually quite moderately fast swimmers and crawlers. Also, they're not very calm either, most turtles are carnivorous hunters. They do "chill" when they bask in the sun. Maybe you're referring more to sloths, who hang on trees and nap all day.
God, way to rain on our fucking parade. Dream crusher...
TROLL IN THE DUNGEON!
How the fuck is that trolling? He's fucking stating facts.
yeah, way to kill the buzzington
you're such an ass...
You just fucking made that. googled it like 20 times. There's no way that was there word for word and didn't come up when I checked. Go away.
I didn't "just make" anything. It's got 33,000 people liking it. How on earth would that happen so fast?
Its the internet. Shit happens fast. This post was all over tumblr less than 12 hours after I posted it. The page wasn't there before I wrote this.
ok, fair enough I apologise, but I can assure you I definitely did not make that page
robed? as in you robed off facebook? why would you take a robe off of facebook? that's nasty man
U took that from MLIB
I don't think I did, I google searched it like 13 times in like 13 different ways. Something would've came up. But if you find the post for me I guess I'll believe you.
its all over facebook?
