The alternative joke.
My joke about the frog going to the bank for a loan has brought a surprising response from a number of readers telling me of an alternative and expanded version.
So, thanks Kathleen, Jim, Frank and all the others, I shall reiterate:
Kermit goes into a bank and is served by counter assistant Patricia Whack. He asks for a loan of pounds 20,000.
"Name please?" asks Patti.
"Kermit Jagger. My dad's Mick Jagger."
"Do you have any security?"
And Kermit hands over a tiny pink porcelain elephant.
Patti, now confused, goes to see the manager, explains the situation and shows him the pink elephant.
"And what the heck is this?" she says.
And the manager replies: "It's a knick knack, Patti Whack, give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
