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".

He's got a big turtle means he's got a big belly. It protrudes, forming a turtle shape. The shortened version is - he's got a big turt. It refers to men in the sense that it equates with a beer belly.
Hey did you see his turtle....it was even bigger than the other guys. Gosh, I hope you don't end up with a turt that big,

A lonely boy's everything. His parents, siblings, pets, house, etc. He walks his turtle to Airmail and hangs out there all day long. The boy enters his turtle in dog competitions for agility, frisbee, and obedience. His turtle greets him every time he comes home and sleeps on the end of his bed at night.

(Not to be confused with tortoise.)
Boy: I love you, turtle!
Turtle:
Boy: I know, now let's go get some ice cream.

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."
