A frog goes into a bank and approaches a teller. He can see
from her nameplate her name is P. Whack.
"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take
a holiday," says the frog.
Ms. P. (Patricia) Whack looks at the frog in disbelief and
asks his name.
"Kermit Jagger, his dad Mick Jagger," the
frog replies, "And it's going to be okay because I know
the bank manager."
Ms. Whack explains to the frog that no matter what or who he
knows, he needs to secure the loan with some valuable collateral.
The frog acknowledges, "Sure, I have this."
He produces a tiny porcelain elephant about an inch tall, bright
pink, and perfectly formed.
Looking very confused, Ms. Whack explains that she'll have
to consult with the bank manager and quickly disappears into
her manager's office with the elephant.
"There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who
claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000," Ms
Whack tells the manager, "And he wants to use this thing
She holds up the tiny pink elephant, her nose all squirmed
up as it swinging in front of her."I mean, what in the
world do you think this is," she asks?
(You're gonna love this!)
(It's a real treat)
(Wait for it. Are you ready?)
The bank manager sees the pink elephant and then looks up at
Ms. Whack, calling her by her nickname as he bellows out, "Don't
you know what this is, Patty?!"
"No," she says almost crying, shocked to see
he is upset.
"Well, it would be obvious to anyone," he
growls. "It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog
a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
