A frog telephoned the Psychic Hotline and was told, "You are going to meet a
beautiful young woman who will want to know everything about you."
The frog said, "That's great! Will I meet her at a party, or what?"
"No," said the psychic, "Next semester in her biology class."
There once was a little frog who wanted to take out a home
improvement loan to fix up his pad. His name is Kermit Jagger.
He hopped over to his local
bank, went up to the teller and said, "Hi, I'd like to take out a
loan to fix up my pad."
The teller replied, "You need to see our loan officer. Her
name is "Patricia Black."
So the frog hops over to the loan officer's desk and sits
down. When Patricia arrives she ask, "What can I do for you?"
The frog says, "I'd like to take out a loan to fix up my pad."
Patricia asked, "What do you have for collateral?"
After thinking for a couple of moments about what he could
offer the frog reaches into his little froggy pocket and pulls out
a small white elephant.
"This is a very unusual form of collateral." said Patricia.
"I'll have to check with our bank president to see if it's ok."
Patricia goes to the president and says, "There's a frog named Kermit Jagger
out there who want's a home loan and this white elephant is all
he is offering for collateral. What should I do?"
The bank president takes the small white elephant and after
carefully examining it hands it back to Patricia and says,
"It's a nick-knack Patty Black give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
There was a really cute princess walking through the woods, and she heard
a voice calling, "Hey Really Cute Princess!"
She looked around and didn't see anyone but a frog. She started to walk on but the frog called
again. "Hey Really Cute Princess, if you take me home and let me sleep on
your pillow, I will turn back into a Handsome Prince!"
It had been a very boring day so she decided to give it a try even though she really
didn't believe the frog.
The Really Cute Princess took the frog home with her and let him sleep on
her pillow. When she got up the next day what do you think she found?
There on her pillow sat a really Handsome Prince.
Do you believe the story?
Well neither did her mother!
A drunk is sitting at a bar, and says, "Bartender! Another drink."
The bartender shakes his head and says, "No you've had enough."
"Well," the drunk says. "How about if I show you something really cool? Then will you give me a drink?"
"Sure," the bartender says. "But it's gotta be pretty cool."
The drunk takes a tiny piano and a frog out of his pockets and sets them on the bar. The frog starts banging away, playing a beautiful song.
The bartender gives him a drink. The drunk downs it, and orders another.
"No way," the bartender says. "Now you've really had enough."
"If you give me a drink, I'll show you something even cooler," says the drunk.
The bartender agrees.
The drunk pulls out a rat, and sets it next to the piano. The frog starts banging away again, and the rat starts singing to the music.
The bartender is amazed, and gives him another drink.
A man who had been watching all this comes up to the drunk and says, "You've got a million dollar act there. I'll give you $500,000 for them right now."
"Not for sale," the drunk croaks.
"Ok, $500,000 just for the frog."
"Not for sale."
"Ok, $500,000 just for the rat."
The drunk agrees, and the man pays him and leaves.
The bartender says to the drunk, "What did you do that for? You broke up a million dollar act!"
"Not really," the drunk says. "You see, the frog's a ventriloquist."
Two frogs were crossing the street:
First frog: "Hey, Look out!!! CAR!" ***squash!!***
Second frog: "Which car?" ***squash!!***
Jim Finn, the noted biologist, was stumped. He'd spent months studying the little green frogs in the Keefo swamp. The population, despite all efforts at predator control, was declining at an alarming rate.
Finally, Finn went to the chemistry department at his college to see if anyone there might be able to help. Tom Trom looked into the problem, and came up with a solution. The little frogs had succumbed to a chemical change in the swamp's water, and simply couldn't stay coupled long enough to reproduce. Tom brewed up a new adhesive, made from a dash of this, a zoss of that, and most critically, one part sodium.
"You mean?.... " Jim said when told.
"Yes," said Tom, "They needed mono-sodium glue to mate."
A little girl walks up to her grandfather and says:
"Grandpa, can you make a sound like a frog?"
"Honey, why do you want me to do that?"
And the little girls says:
"Well, Daddy said that when you croak, we all get to go to Disney World!"
A man walks in to a doctors office with a frog on his head.
The doctor leaps up and says:
"Good grief, how on earth did you get that great ugly thing!"
The frog looks down and replies:
"I dunno Doc, it started out as a little wart on my bottom!"
FELIX THE FLYING FROG: A PARABLE ABOUT SCHEDULES, CYCLE TIMES, AND
SHAPING NEW BEHAVIORS.
Once upon a time, there lived a man named Clarence who had a pet frog
named Felix. Clarence lived a modestly comfortable existence on what
he earned working at the Wal-Mart, but he always dreamed of being
"Felix!" he exclaimed one day, "We're going to be rich! I'm going to
teach you how to fly!"
Felix, of course, was terrified at the prospect: "I can't fly, you
I'm a frog, not a canary!"
Clarence, disappointed at the initial reaction, told Felix: "That
negative attitude of yours could be a real problem. I'm sending you to
So Felix went to a three day class and learned about problem solving,
time management, and effective communication.... but nothing about
On the first day of "flying lessons", Clarence could barely control
his excitement (and Felix could barely control his bladder). Clarence
explained that their apartment had 15 floors, and each day Felix would
jump out of a window starting with the first floor eventually getting
to the top floor.
After each jump, Felix would analyze how well he flew, isolate on the
most effective flying techniques, and implement the improved process
for the next flight. By the time they reached the top floor, Felix
would surely be able to fly.
Felix pleaded for his life, but it fell on deaf ears. "He just
doesn't understand how important this is..." thought Clarence, "but I
won't let nay-sayers get in my way."
So, with that, Clarence opened the window and threw Felix out (who
landed with a thud).
Next day (poised for his second flying lesson) Felix again begged not
to be thrown out of the window. With that, Clarence opened his pocket
guide to Managing More Effectively and showed Felix the part about how
one must always expect resistance when implementing new programs.
And with that, he threw Felix out the window.(THUD)
On the third day (at the third floor) Felix tried a different ploy:
stalling, he asked for a delay in the "project" until better weather
would make flying conditions more favorable.
But Clarence was ready for him: he produced a timeline and pointed to
the third milestone and asked, "You don't want to slip the schedule do
From his training, Felix knew that not jumping today would mean that
he would have to jump TWICE tomorrow.... so he just said: "OK. Let's
go." And out the window he went.
Now this is not to say that Felix wasn't trying his best. On the
fifth day he flapped his feet madly in a vain attempt to fly. On the
day he tied a small red cape around his neck and tried to think
But try as he might, he couldn't fly.
By the seventh day, Felix (accepting his fate) no longer begged for
mercy.... he simply looked at Clarence and said: "You know you're
killing me, don't you?"
Clarence pointed out that Felix's performance so far had been less
than exemplary, failing to meet any of the milestone goals he had set
With that, Felix said quietly: "Shut up and open the window," and he
leaped out, taking careful aim on the large jagged rock by the corner
of the building.
And Felix went to that great lily pad in the sky.
Clarence was extremely upset, as his project had failed to meet a
single goal that he set out to accomplish. Felix had not only failed
to fly, he didn't even learn how to steer his flight as he fell like a
sack of cement.... nor did he improve his productivity when Clarence
had told him to "Fall smarter, not harder."
The only thing left for Clarence to do was to analyze the process and
try to determine where it had gone wrong.
After much thought, Clarence smiled and said:
"Next time...... I'm getting a smarter frog!"
p.s. Don't you think Clarence should have noticed the frog could
A lovely Princess sees a frog in the woods. On closer inspection, she sees that he also happens to be wearing a tiny crown.
So, being the lovely Princess that she was, she puckered up and bent down to kiss the little frog.
The Frog suddenly leaped back, recoiling in horror!
"Please, NO! For God's sake, I've been a frog for years! I have a wife and
hundreds of kids, and THEY'RE ALL FROGS!"
A computer programmer happens across a frog in the road. The frog
pipes up, "I'm really a beautiful princess and if you kiss me, I'll
hang out with you for a week". The programmer shrugs his shoulders and
puts the frog in his pocket.
A few minutes later, the frog says "OK, OK, if you kiss me, I'll be your girlfriend
for a week". The programmer nods and puts the frog back
in his pocket.
A few minutes later, "Turn me back into a princess and I'll be your
girlfriend for a whole year!". The programmer smiles and walks on.
Finally, the frog says, "What's wrong with you? I've promised lots of
fun with a beautiful princess for a whole year and you won't even kiss
"I'm a programmer," he replies. "I don't have time for
girls.... But a talking frog is pretty neat."
A scientist was interested in studying how far bullfrogs can jump. He brought a
bullfrog into his laboratory, set it down, and commanded, "Jump, frog, jump!"
The frog jumped across the room.
The scientist measured the distance, then noted in his
journal, "Frog with four legs - jumped eight feet."
Then he cut the frog's front legs off. Again he ordered, "Jump, frog, jump!"
The frog struggled a moment, then jumped a few feet.
After measuring the distance, the scientist noted in his journal,
"Frog with two legs - jumped three feet."
Next, the scientist cut off the frog's back legs. Once more, he shouted,
"Jump, frog, jump!"
The frog just lay there.
"Jump, frog, jump!" the scientist repeated.
The scientist noted in his
journal, "Frog with no legs - lost its hearing."
One frog says to another:
-Are you indisposed?
And the other answers:
-No!!! Why are you always asking me that?
The first frog says:
-You always look so green!!...
A librarian is working away at her desk when she notices that a chicken has come into the library and is patiently waiting in front of the desk.
When the chicken sees
that it has the librarian's attention, it squawks,
"Book, book, book, BOOK!"
The librarian complies, putting a couple of books down in front of the chicken.
The chicken quickly grabs them and disappears.
The next day, the librarian is again disturbed by the same chicken, who puts the previous day's pile of books down on the desk and again squawks,
"Book, book, book, BOOK!"
The librarian shakes her head, wondering what the chicken is doing with these books, but eventually finds some more books for the chicken.
The next day, the librarian is once again disturbed by the chicken, who squawks (in a rather irritated fashioon, it seems),
"Book, book, book, BOOK!"
By now, the
librarian's curiosity has gotten the better of her, so she gets a pile of books for the chicken, and follows the bird when it leaves the library.
She follows it through the
parking lot, down the street for several blocks, and finally into a large park. The chicken disappears into a small grove of trees, and the librarian follows.
On the other side of the trees is a small marsh. The chicken has stopped on the side of the marsh.
The librarian, now really curious, hurries over and sees that there is a small frog next to the chicken, examining each book, one at a time.
The librarian comes within earshot just in time to hear the frog saying,
"Read it, read it, read it..."
Two frogs sat on Robinson Crusoe's back.
One said to the other,"I have to go now.
But let's meet again on Friday!"

Mama Frog: We are of course!!
Baby Frog: How do you know?
Mama Frog: Well, who ever heard of Kentucky Fried Frog?

The Frog and the Princess
Once upon a time, a beautiful, independent, self assured princess happened upon a frog in a pond.
The frog said to the princess, "I was once a handsome prince until an evil witch put a spell on me. One kiss from you and I will turn back into a prince and then we can marry, move into the castle with my mom and you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children and forever feel happy doing so."
That night, while the princess dined on frog legs, she kept laughing
and saying, "I don't think so."
Billy: You know what the trouble with frogs is?
Diane: No what?
Billy: It's okay for a frog to hop around, but it would look pretty silly for you to hop around a frog!
It seems there were two frogs sitting on a lily pad, when all of a sudden, a fly came along. One frog put out his tongue, ate the fly, and started laughing hysterically.
Soon the other frog joined in the laughter.
Later in the day, the other frog ate a fly and the two frogs burst out in laughter. As time went on, the frogs enjoyed the flies so much that the sight of a fly would
cause them to double up with pleasure (if it's possible for frogs to double up!). But of course, the most pleasure came when the fly was actually eaten.
A third frog hopped up to the first two and asked what was so funny. The first frog answered "Time." "Huh?" asked the third frog. The second frog explained:
"Time's fun when you're having flies."
