The Frog and the Banker

One day a rather large frog hopped into a bank and went straight for a loan officer's office. The startled banker watched in silence as the frog seated himself on a chair in front of his desk. The frog looked at the nameplate sitting on desk and cleared his throat.

"Mr. Paddywhack," croaked the frog.

Mr. Paddywhack's eyes open wide in surprise. "Um, yes?" said the astonished banker. As is the case with most people who spend their lives behind a desk, Mr. Paddywhack was not used to hearing a frog speak.

"I'd like a loan," said the frog.

"A loan?" asked Mr. Paddywhack, who still hadn't regained his composure.

"Yes, a loan," replied the frog.

"In order for the bank to give you a loan you're going to need some kind of collateral," said Mr. Paddywhack as he started to regain his composure.

"I have this," said the frog as he placed a five-inch tall statue of a dolphin jumping a wave on the desk.

"Thatís it?" questioned Mr. Paddywhack as he looked at the dolphin.

"Well my dad is Mick Jagger, but I donít really like to brag," said the frog.

Mr. Paddywhack scrutinized the frog. The frog's lips did bear a certain family resemblance. "This is ridiculous!" announced Mr. Paddywhack. "If you'll excuse me, I'll be right back."

Mr. Paddywhack went to the bank president's door, knocked, and then entered.

"Mr. President, there's a frog in my office who wants a loan. He says his dad is Mick Jagger and he gave me this, I'm not even sure what it is, as collateral."

The bank president looked at the dolphin and then looked up at Mr. Paddywhack and said, "It's a knickknack Paddywhack, give the frog a loan, his old man's a Rolling Stone."

Absolutely hysterical! I have tears streaming from my eyes from laughing so hard! What a delight! Have you considered submitting this to the Reader's Digest? This is definitely something they would take! I interrupted my hubby's fierce focus on his writing to read this to him - and after patiently listening, when I started reading the Bank President's response, he was saying it along with me! With a smile! Thank you for delightifying my day! Most Appreciatively - Judi

Steven, you've started my day with a smile. What an ingenious way to start it, too. I noticed that September was the last time you wrote on FW. Why not share some more recent tales? Bev
