Anybody else notice that Fred the tortoise and his owner, Terry, kind of look alike?

No one asked why he felt such a desparate need to leave? Is there tortoise abuse going on??

Fred the tortoise was spotted making his way down a country lane by a passing motorist who picked him up after almost running him over in his car.

At the time, he was trying to move into the fast lane.

Faster then they move at the post office, tho.

Luckily the Good Samaritan found him, since the owners can only chase at 0.003 mph.

@Clankie--And Fred the Tortoise can also run rings around Congress.

Police flagged down a white Bronco, which was incredibly not involved. However, Hundred Year Old White Tortoise was found to have stood bail for Whitesnake back in the mists of time.

It's spring, Fred was looking for a girlfriend.
