Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow.
The frog says $30,000.
The teller asks his name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger
and that it's OK, he knows the bank manager.
Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he
will need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has
anything he can use as collateral.
The frog says, "Sure. I have this." And he produces a tiny pink porcelain
elephant, about half an inch tall. It's bright pink and perfectly formed.

She finds the manager and reports: "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger
out there who claims to know you, and he wants to borrow $30,000. And

Patti Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone!"
