This term came about through a very popular cartoon of a helmet topping off a pair of boots to signify the veteran with just a short time left in his enlistment and keeping a REALLY low profile, turtle-like, trying to make it out alive. Among VietNam and older veterans a challenge term by which infantrymen recognized each other.

When a veteran infantryman would meet another veteran, the question would be asked: "Are you a turtle?". To which the challenged veteran would have to either reply "You bet your sweet ass I am!" or have to buy the challenging veteran a drink.
Army veteran: "Are you a turtle?"

Marine veteran: "You bet your sweet ass I am".

A term and strategy used in Starcraft II. Turtle or turtling would mean blocking off the ramp to your base with a variety of buildings. For terran players it would consist of either supply depots, barracks, factories or bunkers . For protoss players it would consist of either pylons, gateways, forges, cybernetics core or cannons.
This would be the most simple opener for most terran players as it walls in your base providing adequate defence .
Zone: "So what's the plan?"
Dext: "I'm going to turtle to counter the zergling rush then focus on my eco."
Zone: "Alright . Same goes for me then."

Similar to a dutch oven in the sense that you cut a disgusting fart and cover your girl's head under the blanket. She then sticks out her arms and legs kicking but her head is under the blanket and she looks like a turtle.
My girl loves the idea of me giving her a nasty turtle

a breaker move like the cricket except instead of bouncing from hand to hand you have your elbows in your gut and your spining in a circle by slightly raising your hand shifting if and puting it back down. keep dooing this from hand to hand until you've gone around in a complete cirle
turtles are easy to do as long as you can hold the freeze.
