A frog walks into a bank...

A frog goes into a bank. He says to the teller, "I need to borrow some money." Teller looks at him and says "Well I can help you with that, but first I need to ask you a few questions. First of all, are you employed?

Frog grins and says, "I'm between hop-portunities at the moment." Teller doesn't crack a smile. "Unfortunately for you sir, humor is not a currency we recognize at this bank" she states dryly.

Sensing that his usual charm isn't working, the frog looks at the teller's nametag. "Listen Ms Wack-"

"You can call me Patti" the teller replies.

"Listen Patti, I usually don't advertise this, but Mick Jagger is my father. I'm sure he can vouch for me." The teller stares at him in disbelief. "Mick Jagger, the rock and roll legend is your father? I find that highly dubious. Is there anything tangible you can provide, some kind of collateral?"

The frog reaches into his pocket and pulls out a cheaply-made figurine, like something you might find on your grandma's shelf collecting dust. He hands it to the teller, who shakes her head in frustration. "What am I supposed to do with this?"

Finally the bank manager comes over. "Ms Wack, is there a problem here?"

"I should certainly say so. This frog is asking to borrow money. He's unemployed, claims his father is Mick Jagger and offered this as collateral - I don't even know what it is!"

The bank manager takes a long look at the figurine, then turns back to the teller and says:

"It's a knick-knack, Patti Wack. Give that frog a loan! His old man's a Rolling Stone!"
