Post turtle


Gaining success by others efforts, not one’s own. Comes from the idea that if you see a turtle on top of a fence  post, you know it didn’t get there on it’s own power, someone else placed it there.

“He may appear rich and famous but it’s because of  his family’s wealth, he’s just a post turtle.”
