A Pain In The Arm

I once met a phlebotomist who used to have to perform venipuncture on Mick Jagger.

He said it was like getting blood out of a stone.

A frog walks into the bank and walks up to the counter. The cashier, he reads from her name tape is a miss Patty Whack. The frog leans in, and asks for a loan of £10,000. Ms Whack is understandably taken aback, and tells the frog that he will have to put up collateral.
Nodding, the frog places a small pink elephant on the counter.
"Tell the manager that Kermit Jagger wants a loan," he croaks.
Ms Whack goes into the managers office and explains the situation. She explains about the collateral and waits for the manager to say no. Imagine her surprise when the answer is:
"It's a nicknack, Patty Whack, give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone".

It's linked. Sort of.
Apologies to all and sundry...
