Give the Frog a Loan Skit
A Favorite Skit
This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
3 scouts - a frog seeking a loan, Patty Wack the loan officer, Mr. Smith the bank manager.
a statue, stick, or some small silly item
Mr. Smith is offstage.
Patty Wack is seated at a desk.
The frog walks into the bank.
frog: Ribbit. Good morning.
patty: Good morning. (looks up and sees frog.) Oh my! Uh, my name is Patty Wack. How can I help you?
frog: Ms. Wack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation.
patty: (Takes a hard look at the frog, then shrugs her shoulders and gets out loan form. She starts filling in information) How much would you like to borrow?
frog: $25,000 please.
patty: What is your name?
frog: Kermit Jagger, I'm Mick Jagger's son, you know. My dad is good friends with your bank manager.
patty: Well, $25,000 is quite a bit of money. We will need some collateral to secure the loan. What do you have?
frog: (holds up a small item) I have this Hummel!
patty: (takes item and looks at it in confusion) Well, ummm, I'm going to have the bank manager take a look at this.
(yells) Mr. Smith, could you come here please?!
Mr. Smith: Yes, Ms. Wack. What seems to be the trouble?
patty: This frog's name is Kermit Jagger and he claims his father knows you and he wants a $25,000 loan and he wants to use this, this, this 'HUMMEL!' as collateral. I don't even know what a Hummel is or if we can even give a loan to a frog!
Mr. Smith: Obviously, it's a knick-knack, Patty Wack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone!
