A Frog’s Tale – Humor Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1522 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life – something to cheer you and give a bit a levity in your life.
We are told in 15:30&version=NLT">Proverbs 15:30, “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” We are also encouraged in 17:22&version=NLT">Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny which is titled…
A Frog’s Tale
Mr. Frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patty Whack.
“Miss Whack, 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, “My name is Kermit Jagger, my dad is Mick Jagger, and it’s okay to borrow that amount of money because John Smith, the bank manager, and I are good friends.”
Patty explains, “Well, Mr. Frog, we will need to secure the loan with some collateral.”
Mr. Frog says, “Sure, I understand. I have this delicate, scarce tiny porcelain elephant. As you can see, it is about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.”
Very confused, Patty explains, “I will have to consult with Mr. Smith, the bank manager,” and then she disappears into a back office.
She finds Mr. Smith 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?”
Mr. Smith looks at the tiny elephant and hands it back to Patty, and says, “It’s a knick-knack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”
(Come on and admit it, you sang it, didn’t you? Yeah, I know you did.)
I hope that brought a smile to your face today. If it did, pass your smile on to someone else, we all could use a kind smile each day. Our Thursday thought is, “A knick-knack is a thing that sits on top of a whatnot.”
Here is our verse for today.
Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
