I’m not sure what a turtledove is and looking it up would just kind of ruin the joke so I’m not going to do that. I imagine, though that it combines the essence of the dove with the essence of a turtle – meaning that it tastes great for crabs.
But I can’t help but think of the iconic olive-branch weaving peace dove in some militaristic-looking camo and shield. Which I find to be astute these days.
“Wise as doves, shrewd as turtles.”
