A frog walks into a bank. Heâ€™s a little nervous, because heâ€™s never been in a bank before. He spots a friendly-looking associate whose nameplate says Ms. Patricia Whack seated at a desk, and walks up to her. He used to know a girl named Patricia in school, and she was nice, so hopefully this woman will be helpful.
He clears his throat, and announces, â€œIâ€™d like to apply for a loanâ€. Patricia looks bewildered. â€œA loan? Iâ€™m supposed to loan money to a frog?â€
He responds â€œBut Iâ€™m not just any old frog. My father is a very well known rock star. His name is Mick Jagger. That should be good for something, Iâ€™d hope.â€
The associate eyes him with suspicion. â€œHmmmâ€¦well, for us to loan money weâ€™ll need collateral. Do you have anything of value?â€
The frog pulls out a tiny, delicate pink elephant, made of some sort of stone, and hands it to her. She is flabbergasted. At a loss for words, she says "Excuse me for a moment, please.", takes the elephant, and walks off to find the bank manager.
When she finds the manager, she walks up to him, shaking her head. â€œSir, thereâ€™s a frog at my desk, asking for a loan. He says we should give him a loan because his father is Mick Jagger, and when I asked him about collateral, he handed me this! What the heck is this?â€
The manager looks at her calmly, and responds, â€œItâ€™s a knick knack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old manâ€™s a Rolling Stone.â€
