The Frog

A man was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to
him and said, "If you kiss me, I will 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 tell everyone how
smart and brave you are and how you are my hero." The man
took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned
it to his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn
me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving
companion for an entire 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 beautiful princess, I will stay with you for a year
and do ANYTHING you want." Again the man took the frog out
of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I have you
told I am a beautiful princess, that I will stay for a year
and do anything you want. Why won`t you kiss me?"

The man said, "Look, I am an engineer. I do not have time
for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."
