Turtles escape North Ga. farm — which is funny because they're slow

Who you callin yellow bellied?
SOMEBODY GET PIXAR ON THE PHONE ...

The scene: David Driver's Northwest Georgia turtle farm.

The setup: Vandals tear down a fence along the farm's perimeter.

The action: Between 1,600 and 2,200 tiny, green reptiles — snappers, Eastern paints, yellow-bellied sliders — pack their tiny, turtle suitcases (their shells — a doi), and slowly scooted toward freedom in nearby ponds and creeks.

What really happened: A spunky group of vaguely anthropomorphized turtles hatch elaborate plot to tear down the enclosures at their rural turtle farm before they can be shipped away to pet/grocery stores in China. Hilarity and hi-jinx ensue. Everyone learns a lesson about courage, being true to oneself, and overcoming obstacles, like a propensity toward slow movement that would seem to make escape impossible.

THE END.
