The Talking Frog
The old ladies were walking down the street one wintry day when they heard a voice calling for help. They looked around and saw a little green leg sticking out from beneath a snowbank. One of the ladies digs down and pulls out a very cold frog and starts warming it up in her hand.
"Oh thank you, thank you," says the frog. "I was freezing to death under that snowbank before you came along and saved me."
The ladies are, of course, amazed by the fact that this frog can talk. The frog continues, "You know, I'm not actually a frog, and if you kiss me I'll turn back into a handsome prince." The lady nods at this, but just slips the frog into her pocket. The other lady looks puzzled and asks, "Well, aren't you going to kiss him and see if it works?"
The first lady replies, "Certainly not! I can make a whole lot more money with a talking frog."
Horror gripped the heart of the World War-I soldier as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. Caught in a trench with continuous gunfire whizzing over his head, the soldier asked his lieutenant if he might go out into the "No Man's Land" between the trenches to bring his fallen comrade back.
"You can go," said the Lieutenant, "but I don't think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your own life away." The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway.
Miraculously he managed to reach his friend, hoist him onto his shoulder, and bring him back to their company's trench. As the two of them tumbled in together to the bottom of the trench, the officer checked the wounded soldier, then looked kindly at his friend.
"I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is dead, and you are mortally wounded."
"It was worth it, though, sir," the soldier said.
"How do you mean, 'worth it'?" responded the Lieutenant. "Your friend is dead!"
"Yes sir," the private answered. "But it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive, and I had the satisfaction of hearing him say, Jim, I knew you'd come.'"
