View Full Version : Priest and frog

One fine sunny morning, a priest took a walk in the local forest. He was walking by a small stream when he noticed a sad looking frog sitting on a toadstool.

"What's wrong with you?" said the priest.

"Well," said the frog, "the reason I am so sad on this fine day is because I wasn't always a frog."

"Really?" said the priest. "Can you explain!"

"Once upon a time, when I was an 11-year-old choirboy at the local church. I too was walking through this forest when I was confronted by a wicked witch.

"'Let me pass!' I yelled, but to no avail. She called me a cheeky little boy and, with a flash of her wand, turned me into this frog you see before you."

"That's an incredible story," said the priest. "Is there no way of reversing this spell?"

"Yes," replied the frog, "it is said, that if a nice kind person picks me up, takes me home, gives me food, warmth and a good nights sleep then I will wake up a boy once again."

"Today's your lucky day!" said the priest, picking up the frog and taking him home. The priest gave the frog lots of food, placed him by the fire and at bedtime put the frog on the pillow beside him. When the priest awoke, he saw the 11-year-old choirboy beside him in bed.

"And that my lord concludes the case for the Defence."
