A young man was a slow worker and found it difficult to hold down a job. After a visit to the employment office, he was offered work at the local zoo. When he arrived for his first day, the keeper, aware of his reputation, told him to take care of the tortoise section.
Later, the keeper dropped by to see how the young man was doing and found him standing by an empty enclosure with the gate open. “Where are the tortoises?” he asked.
“I can’t believe it,” said the new employee. “I just opened the door and WHOOOOOSH, they were gone!”

Tim says: Okay. Here’s a couple more of my favorite tortoise jokes:
A snail was crossing the road when he was run over by a tortoise. A policeman came along and asked him how it happened. “I don’t know,” replied the snail, “It all happened so fast!”
Q: What does a snail say when it’s riding on top of a tortoise?
A: “Wheee! We’re really moving now!”
