Why Did The Turtle Cross The Road?: Video
"A large animal believed to be a desert tortoise was killed Sunday as it wandered onto Interstate 10 in an unincorporated area of Riverside County.
By the time officers arrived on scene less than 20 minutes later, the tortoise had been fatally struck near the Whitewater exit and rest area."
Why did the turtle cross the road? This one must have wanted to cross over onto the other side -- eternity.
This giant turtle is a shell of his former self, not even enough left of the creature for Honey Boo Boo and her family to make turtle soup.
Looks like the hare won this race; I can just see Bugs Bunny telling the hapless tortoise that crossing the highway was the quickest shortcut to win the race.
To those who may complain that this article doesn`t qualify as real news I say: Beats writing another boring story about the government shutdown.
