the talking frog
A young man 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 man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to his 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 man took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.
Finally the frog asked, „What is it? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful Princess, that I’ll stay with you for one week and do ‚anything‘ you want. Why don’t you kiss me?“
The young man said, „Look, I’m a computer programmer. I don’t have time for girlfriends, but a talking frog is really cool.“
