The engineer and the frog
« on: 03/10/2007 22:19:26 »
An engineer was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess".

He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week."

The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want."

Again the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The engineer said, "Look I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

I first saw a variant of this back in 1995, when my half sister sent me a copy of the above referring to a programmer and a princess, but otherwise the same.

My reply to it was:

Quote
Let us look rationally at what might happen if I were to weaken to the
pleas and promises of this princess in frogs form :

Option 1:

The frog, having returned to the form of a princess, forgets her
promises, and walks away.  The promises are not legally enforceable, and
should I attempt to enforce them, would no doubt be charged with false
imprisonment, and other heinous charges.

As a frog, she has few legal rights, and I could have kept her as long as
I wished - unless ofcourse she was an endangered species of frog, in
which case I have to ask what is the legal situation regarding the
transmogrification of endangered species into princesses.

Option 2:

The princess has a conscience, and does stay with me for a week - but she
turns out to be a stuck up old b***, and had a much nicer personality as
a frog.  Do I really want to go through a week of hell, when I would have
been much happier with the frog.

Option 3:

The princess is not only beautiful, but kind, and sweet, and cheerful,
and thoughtful, and loving, and I fall madly in love with her.  At the
end of the week she walks off, leaving miserably broken hearted and
hopelessly pining for her.  I should have kept her as a frog, and she
would never have walked out on me.

I suppose one could look on the bright side, I could always make a
fortune selling the story to the tabloids.

The engineer and the frog ?????

ROFTL !!!!!  ;D ;D ;D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



A drunk was sitting in a bar, and says, "Bartender! Give me another  drink."

The bartender shakes his head and says, "No youíre already drunk."

"Well," the drunk says. "How about if I show you something really neat? Then, will you give me another drink?"

"Ok," the bartender says. "It will have to be spectacular."

The drunk takes a small saxophone and a frog out of his pockets and sets them on the bar. The frog picks up the saxophone and starts playing a jazzy song. The bartender says that is worth a drink. The drunk guzzles it down, and asks for another drink.

"You canít have another one," the bartender says. "You've had to many already."

 "If you let me have another drink I'll show you more spectacular than the frog," says the drunk. The bartender laughs at the drunk but he agrees to give him just one more drink. The drunk pulls out a hamster and puts it up on the bar beside the frog. The frog begins to play the saxophone again, and the hamster begins to sing to the music. The bartender laughs, and sits another drink on the bar.

Another guy who was seated next to the drunk watching the show, says to him, "You've got an amazing team there. I'll give you $1,000,000 for them right now."

 "They are not for sale," the drunk says.

 "Ok, $1,000,000 just for the frog."

 "Heís not for sale."

 "Ok, $1,000,000 just for the hamster."

The drunk says ok, so the guy gives the drunk the money and walks out of the bar.

 The bartender, shocked and confused asks the drunk, "Why did you sell the hamster? You broke up an amazing team!"

 "No I didnít," the drunk says. "You see, the frog's a ventriloquist.
