Day 9: Hello My Ragtime Gal

This is the ninth day of 'Lacey's More Funner 30 Days of Blogging' which I talked about here. I'm pretty sure I'm just setting myself up to fail, but I'll give it a try!

DAY 9: TELL A JOKE

I'm an awful joke teller. I usually just stick to these types:

Q: How do you catch a unique rabbit?
A: Unique up on it.

Q: How do you catch a tame rabbit?
A: Tame way, unique up on it.

or,
Q: What do you call a cow with 2 legs?
A: Lean Beef

Q: What do you call a cow with no legs?
A: Ground Beef

But, it would be far too easy to just tell one of those and be done with it. So, since I am totally incapable of telling the "story" type jokes in person, I am going to take this opportunity to tell one of my favorite "story" jokes.

At least this way, when I get to the punch line and realize I forgot to tell parts of it, I can just go back and add them without getting booed off the stage. You lovelies won't boo me, right??

Anyways, here is:

The Frog at the Bank

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.

"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a vacation.

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 is 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 named Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"

The bank manager looks back at her and says...

"It's a knick knack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."


Hahahahaaaa. You know you loved it!

& is it just me, or did you picture Michigan J. Frog when reading this joke?
