Oh my friends – who says that daddy is the only one at the Hotel Thompson who can tell a joke. Because this morning I have a great one for you. Really I do. Something I heard and just simply can’t resist sharing. I know it may be weak but after you read it you have to admit it is kind of funny.
A frog goes into the bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her name plate that her name is Patty Whack. “Miss 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 manager.
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 says his dad is Mick Jagger, who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000 AND he wants to use this as collateral.” She then holds up the tiny pink elephant. “I mean what the heck is this?”
The bank manager looks backs at her and says without missing a beat, “It’s a knickknack Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a rolling stone.”
(I won’t tell anyone that you’re singing that last line – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter!)
