A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia A. Whak.
“Miss Whak, I’d like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday.”
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’s 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 called 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 knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”
A rabbit walks into a pub
and says to the barman “Can I have a pint of beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie”
The barman is amazed but gives the rabbit a pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie.
The rabbit drinks the beer and eats the toastie, he then leaves.
The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie.
The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and the extra drinkers in the pub (because word gets round) gives the rabbit the pint and the toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves.
The next night, the pub is packed, in walks the rabbit and says “A pint of beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman”
The crowd is hushed as the barman gives the rabbit his pint and toastie and then burst into applause as the rabbit wolfs them down.
The next night there is standing room only in the pub, coaches have been laid on for the crowds of patrons attending, the barman is making more money in one week than he did all last year.
In walks the rabbit and says, “A Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman”, smiling and accepting the tributes of the masses.
The barman says, “I’m sorry rabbit, old mate, old mucker but we are right out of them Ham and Cheese Toasties”
The rabbit looks aghast, the crowd has quietened to almost a whisper, when the barman clears his throat nervously and says, “We do have a very nice Cheese and Onion Toastie”
The rabbit looks him in the eye and says, “Are you sure I will like it” The masses bated breath is ear shatteringly silent.
The barman, with a rougish smile says, “Do you think that I would let down one of my best friends, I know you’ll love it”
“Ok” says the rabbit,” I’ll have a Pint of Beer and a Cheese and Onion Toastie”
The pub erupts with glee as the rabbit quaffs the beer and guzzles the toastie, he then
waves to the crowd and leaves,…….NEVER TO RETURN!!!!!!
One year later in the now impoverished public house, the barman (who has only served 4 drinks tonight, 3 of which were his) calls time.
When he is cleaning down the now empty bar, he sees a small white form, floating above the bar.
The barman says, “Who are you?” to which he is answered, “I am the ghost of the rabbit that used to frequent your public house”
The barman says, “I remember you, you made me famous, you would come in every night and have a Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie – masses came to see you and this place was famous”
The rabbit says, “Yes I know”
The barman said, “I remember, on your last night we didn’t have any Ham and Cheese Toasties, you had a Cheese and Onion one instead”
The rabbit said “Yes, you promised me that I would love it”
The barman said “You never came back, after that fateful night, what happened?”
“I DIED”, said the Rabbit.
“I’m sorry to hear that” said the barman, “what from?”.
After a short pause, the rabbit said…
Mixing me Toasties!!!!
