The Computer Programmer and the Frog

A computer programmer 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 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 princess, I’ll stay with you for a year and do anythingyou want.” Again the man 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 year and do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?”
The man said, “Look, I’m a computer programmer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool.”

3. Don’t forget about the word geeks among us:

    Oh, the talking frog joke! I used to tell that one to my students when I was a software trainer. Excellent geekery, my friend!

    Most excellent Tuesday fun, Kathy!! I love the frog too, but that Taco Cat killed me. Where in the world did you find that picture??!

    No not our geek on! Does it help that I love the day Tuesday? It’s not Monday and it’s not Friday. Certainly not Wednesday. But geeky? Nooooo. LOL! I love the Taco cat Kathy! 🙂

    Hilarious! I’m so glad I now have the definitive Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock diagram. And I think that teen cartoon has my kid in it!

    Outstanding! Seeing as Steve Jobs made being a geek cool, I would like everyone to know that my son is having a very geeky bar mitzvah. For real. I’m a little scared. Can you find me some good gifts for my little Tech Support. 😉

    Love this!!! I can’t decide which is my favorite, although the nifty diagram for Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock cleared up a few things for me. Awesome blog!

    Fun stuff, Kathy! I love the palindrome. I’m a geek of the old fashioned variety.

    There is a game/quiz/ book I had once with obscure clues for palindromes.

    Must. Go. Find.

    Google! Wait! I’m on my way.

    Fun post.
