    A man 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 stay with you for one week." 
    The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. 
    The frog then cried out: "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess,  I'll stay with you and do anything  you 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 week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me ?" 
    The man said,  "Look I'm a software engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."
