A frog goes into a bank and approaches
the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.
"Ms. Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000
loan to take a holiday."
Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and
asks his name. The frog says his name
is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank
Patty explains that he will need to
secure the loan with some collateral.
The frog says, "Sure. I have
this.", and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright
pink and perfectly formed.
Very confused, Patty explains that she'll
have to consult with the bank manager, and disappears into a back office.
She finds the manager and says,
"There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there, who claims to know you and
wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use THIS as collateral."
She holds up the tiny pink
elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"
The bank manager looks back at her and
"It's a knickknack, Patty
Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
