A Little Bit Of Whimsical Nothing


Pink Elephant

The Frog Gets a Loan

One day a frog went into a bank.The teller’s name was Miss Patty Whack. “ I want a loan” said the frog. Miss Whack replied, “ Well, we need proof of your identity and you will need to show us some collateral. Who are you and what do you have to show ?”

“Well, my name  is Hermit Jagger, and I have this” he replied, proudly pulling a pink china elephant out of his briefcase.

“ I will have to talk to the manager to authorise any loan for you”

Patty Whack went into the manager’s office. “ I have this frog, he wants a loan,  says  his name is Hermit Jagger, and this is what he has for security.  What is this and what do I do now”

The manager looked at Miss Whack, and said, very seriously.

“ It’s a nick knack, Patty Whack, give the frog a loan,

His old man’s a Rolling Stone”

Quotation of the day from Horace

Remember when life's path is steep

to keep your mind even.
