I was cruising the cyber sphere and I found this great site that has the funniest jokes. Since I was on a frog kick before, I thought I would continue the irritation.
While I'm typing this, I'm listening to the BeeGees. Remember them? I was amazed at something I learned about them. My first recollection of the Brothers Gibb was their contribution to the craze generated by 'Saturday Night Fever" during the disco era. I had no idea that they were popular WAY before that. Can you believe that when their first song became a hit, "The New York Mining Disaster" I was 3 years old!!!!!! And since then, they've topped the charts in five successive decades. That blew me away! They actually had beautiful compositions. Strange to think that, huh? Then they did DISCO. Who knew?
OK, enough of being on the retro-train:
For all you froggie lovers:

Frog Wants a Bank Loan
A frog goes into a bank and hops up on the desk of the loan officer.
"Hi," he croaks. "What's your name?" The loan officer says, "My name is Paddy Wack. May I help you?"
"Yeah," says the frog. "I'd like to borrow some money."
The loan officer finds this a little odd, but gets out a form. "Okay, what's your name?" The frog replies, "Kermit Jagger." "Really?" says the loan officer. "Any relation to Mick Jagger?" "Yeah, he's my dad."
"Hmm," says the loan officer. "Do you have any collateral?" The frog hands over a pink ceramic elephant and asks, "Will this do?"
The loan officer says, "Um, I'm not sure. Let me go check with the bank manager." "Oh, tell him I said hi," adds the frog. "He knows me."
The loan officer goes back to the manager and says, "Excuse me, sir, but there's a frog out there named Kermit Jagger who wants to borrow some money. All he has for collateral is this pink elephant thing; I'm not even sure what it is other than a knickknack."
The manager says, "gee that's from the 17th century, it's worth tons of money". He walks over to Patty and says "Thats no knick-knake Patty Whac give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
(You're singing it, aren't ya?) Are we still friends? *grin*
The last word on the subject of Frogs:
Subj: Talking Frog Was Once A Prince (S167 & S343b) From: RFSlick on 4/11/00 and From: DoctorDebt on 8/28/2003 (do I really have to have this stuff????)
Fairy Tale for the woman of the 21st Century.
Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped into the princess's lap and said: Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and setup housekeeping in yon castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.
That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a repast of lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to herself and thought:
"I don't fucking think so."
I am currently reading the biography of Bela Legosi...remember him from Dracula? Did you know that he could sing 0pera and appeared in quite a few productions in his native Hungary??
I think that is so neat. He was an amazing man, really! I'll share the juicey tidbits with you if you'd like.
That's all for today, folks.
