    A mangy looking guy goes into a bar and orders a drink.
    The bartender says, "No way. I don't think you can pay
    for it."

    The guy says, "You're right. I don't have any money, but if
    I show you something you haven't seen before, will you give
    me a drink?"

    The bartender says, "Only if what you show me ain't risque."

    "Deal!" says the guy and reaches into his coat pocket and
    pulls out a hamster. He puts the hamster on the bar and it
    runs to the end of the bar, down the bar, across the room,
    up the piano, jumps on the keyboard and starts playing
    Gershwin songs. And the hamster is really good.

    The bartender says, "You're right. I've never seen anything like
    that before. That hamster is truly good on the piano." The guy
    downs the drink and asks the bartender for another.

    "Money or another miracle, or else no drink," says the bartender.
    The guy reaches into his coat again and pulls out a frog. He puts
    the frog on the bar, and the frog starts to sing. He has a marvelous
    voice and great pitch. A fine singer. A stranger from the other end
    of the bar runs over to the guy and offers him $300 for the frog.

    The guy says, "It's a deal." He takes the $300 and gives the stranger
    the frog. The stranger runs out of the bar. The bartender says to the
    guy "Are you some kind of nut? You sold a singing frog for $300?
    It must have been worth millions. You must be crazy."

    "Not so," says the guy. "The hamster is also a ventriloquist."
