good frog joke

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack. So he says, "Mrs. Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation."

Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow. "30 thousand dollars," says the frog. She asks his name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's OK, because he knows the bank manager.

Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan. "Do you have anything that could be used for collateral?" she asks.

"Sure," the frog says. "I have this," and produces a tiny pink porcelain elephant, about half an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and disappears into the back office.

She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you. He wants to borrow $30,000 and use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what the heck is this?"


The bank manager looks at her and says, "It's a knick knack, Patti Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

I was SO expecting that to be a wickedly dirty punchline, but what the heck. It made me laugh. Thanks. :)

That was histerical! I don't think I'll ever be able to tell it, though. I can't deliver the punch line with a straight face!

Actually, I've already dropped it on a few people, and they'd all heard it before. It must be an old joke, but when I heard it again last week, it struck me as being genuinely quite funny. But you have to like puns, and not everyone does. :)
