A tourist, driving by a Texas ranch, hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth.
”Oh, about $200 today,” said the rancher. ”But in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I’m out.”
The tourist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer.
”Here,” he said, ”is the check for $900. It’s postdated six years from now.”
A frog walks into a bank and asks the teller, ”Who do I talk to about getting a loan?” The teller shows him to the office of the loans manager, Ms. Patricia Black.” I would like a loan for $20. 00 to buy a new lily pad,” the frog tells her.” Do you have any collateral?” asks Ms. Black. The frog produces a small statuette of the Eiffel Tower with the inscription ”Souvenir of Paris” engraved on the base. Unsure whether or not the object is worth the amount of the loan, she summons the bank manager. The manager inspects the trinket, nods his head, and says, ”It’s a knick-knack, Patty Black - give the frog a loan.”-0+
