With the increasing amount of e-mailbox clutter sent by individuals who
are, shall we say, less than experts on the topic, I felt a humorous story
would be a refreshing break.  Enjoy, James Woodson

>> A boy 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 boy 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 boy 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 boy said, "Look, I'm a scientist.  I don't have time for a
>> girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."
