A frog enters a bank and hops up to the teller. Her name badge reads “Patricia Whack.” The frog says to the teller, “Good morning. I’d like a loan, please.”
The teller asks, “For how much?”
"Ten million, please," replies the frog.
The teller is shocked. “You want how much?! But you’re a frog.”
"I may be a frog, but my name is Kermit Jagger. I am Mick Jagger’s love child."
Ms. Whack is flabbergasted. “Well, have you even got anything to put up as collateral?”
"Of course I have," says Kermit Jagger, reaching down into a bag. He pulls out a pink porcelain elephant and places it on the table. "There you go."
"I’m sorry," says Ms. Whack, "But I can’t accept this as collateral on a loan that size."
The frog sighs. “Look, just go and see your manager, will you. I know the man.”
Ms. Whack sighs in turn, and heads into the bank manager’s office. “Sorry to bother you, sir, but there’s a frog outside asking for a massive loan. All he has for collateral is…whatever this thing is supposed to be.” She places the porcelain elephant on the manager’s desk.
The manager looks at the elephant, then looks around his door at Kermit, then turns to the teller and says, “It’s a knick-knack Patty Whack, give the frog a loan — his old man’s a Rolling Stone.”
