Bestest Dad Dan (and he has the trophies to prove it) sends along this Story Bone from the category of overheard, out of context lines which are just so interesting they have to be used.
"If I was in charge, we would be up to our necks in box turtles."
Context was a discussion about predator-prey balance. But feel free to wing it. You could go with the "It's turtles all the way down" concept, or (another favorite quote) "thundering herd of turtles."
