You're a turtle!
Title text: You're a turtle!

Turtles are laid back dudes, as also noted in Finding Nemo. While an offscreen character is panicking over deleting a file, the turtle is content with just being a turtle. Fifty years later it is still content with being a turtle. Perspective, man!

The title text is a reference to 231: Cat Proximity.


[There is a turtle.]
Off-panel: Oh, crap, I deleted the file!
[There is a turtle.]
Turtle (thinking): I am a turtle.
[There is a turtle.]
Off-panel: No, wait, there it is.
[There is a turtle.]
Turtle (thinking): I am a turtle.
[There is a turtle.]
50 Years Later:
Turtle (thinking): I am a turtle.
Turtles have it figured out, man.

I don't think turtles possess that level of sentience, but whatever. Seems legit. Davidy²²[talk] 10:10, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
