Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Wednesday, August 22, 2018


A frog wearing a tiny backpack went into a bank and approached a loan officer.  Her name tag said that her name was Patricia Whack so he politely said, "Miss Whack, I'd like a $50,000 loan immediately so I can buy the Brooklyn Bridge.  The guy's offer expires at midnight so time is of the essence."

Miss Whack was taken aback by what she was hearing (or seeing, for that matter), but she tried to remain professional.  "And what is your name,sir?"

The frog puffed himself up proudly.  "My name is Kermit Jagger.  Mick Jagger is my father.  And by the way, I'm good friends with the bank manager so it's okay to give me the money."

Miss Whack swallowed loudly.  "And what, sir," she asked, "do you offer for collateral?"

The frog reached into his backpack and pulled a tiny figurine of an elephant.  It was green and missing one tusk.  "This," the frog said, handing the trinket to Miss Whack.

"One moment, sir" she said.  Then she hurried to the bank manager's office.  "Sir, you won't believe this.  There's a frog out there who wants a $50,000 loan.  He says his name is Kermit Jagger and that he's a friend of yours."  She put the figurine on the manager's desk, "He's offering this as collateral.  And he claims that Mick Jagger is his father!"

The bank manager looks at the figurine and told his employee, "It's a knickknack, Patti Whack.  Give the frog a loan.  His old man's a Rolling Stone."
