A Frog In The Presidential Palace

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was walking through the 1,150 rooms of the new Turkish Presidential Palace in Ankara.

As he was walking through the rooms, he was daydreaming in his mind of a referendum in which the populace of Turkey unanimously voted to have him declared Sultan of Turkey.

Today Sultan of Turkey, tomorrow Caliph of the entire world.

Erdogan entered the conservatory which contained luscious plants and artificial waterfalls.

He suddenly noticed a little green frog sitting on one of the plants near the waterfalls.

The frog croaked, “Ribbit, ribbit.”

Erdogan hurriedly left the conservatory and went to one of the Presidential Palace guards.

Said Erdogan to the guard, “There’s a little green frog in that room and he croaked ‘Ribbit, ribbit’ to me. Check him out.”

The guard went into the room and noticed a little green frog sitting on a lily pad near one of the waterfalls.

The frog opened his mouth and said, “I am Nimrod.”

The guard went out into the hall and addressed Erdogan.

“I saw the frog,” said the guard, “but he didn’t say ‘Ribbit, ribbit’, he said, ‘I am Nimrod’.”

“Nonsense you idiot,” Erdogan foamed, “Frogs don’t have the power of speech. Have you been drinking on the job? Although as a good Muslim, you shouldn’t be drinking off the job either.”

Erdogan went into the room and approached the frog.

“Well say, ‘Ribbit, ribbit’,” ordered Erdogan.

The frog opened his mouth and said, “Rabbit, rabbit.”

Erdogan left the room in a huff and went up to the guard.

“Did he say ‘Ribbit, ribbit’?” The guard asked.

“No, he said, ‘Rabbit, rabbit’,” Erdogan replied white as a ghost.

A little white bunny rabbit hopped out of the conservatory room behind Erdogan and then proceeded to hop through the rest of the 1,150 rooms of the Turkish Presidential Palace.

The little green frog followed.

    Really looking forward to the next chapter!

    hahaha … My dear, Chris! Is this a new fairy tale I didn’t know? I love it! Gosh, I had a good laugh.

      Yes, it’s a new fairy tale that I’ve come up with that I’ve put smack in the middle of my vampire novel.

      Inspired by that conversation you had with your daughter in which you wondered if Sarah had kissed Asmodeus, would he have ceased being a demon and become human, and your daughter laughed and said, “No, mom, he’d have turned into a frog.”

      So when Lilith rescued Nimrod from that secret U.S. government lab outside Washington D.C. in my earlier chapter and kissed him to bring him back to life, I thought of what your daughter had said and thought, “Oh, why not? I’ll have Nimrod turn into a frog as a result of Lilith’s kiss.”

      So if my novel ever becomes famous, you can tell people that it was a conversation between you and your daughter that inspired a new take on the story of the Frog Prince suddenly showing up in the midst of my vampire novel.

      LOL !

      And then when the frog got a craving to write a poem like H. P. Lovecraft, it would go into a Welsh restaurant and order “Rarebit! Rarebit!”. 😀

      • Sherrie de Valeria said,

        The truth is, Chris … The evolution of the frogs came actually from the Rabbit, I believe. There were once rabbits and then gone to be a frog because once in the past life the Rabbit wants to swim and wish they can get into water without drowning.

        And so came the same witch that had Ariel turned into a human being, took her fish tail and gave her a human legs and feet …. But she cannot speak.

        The Rabbit said,”I do not want to be a fish because then I want to be able to go up on the land too. I would want still to be part of what is up there above the surface. Turn me into something of which can leap and swim, but can breathe the air of Mother Earth up there. But let the reminder be left upon me that I was once before a Rabbit. Please don’t take my voice away.”

        “And so be it!” Says the witch and turned the rabbit into a frog.

        And the Rabbit via Froggie says thank you … “Ribbit, ribbit!”

        LOL 😛

      LOL !

      And this part of the evolutionary theory escaped Charles Darwin’s attention because he was too busy eating turtle soup on the Galápagos Islands.

      He didn’t notice the frogs that were breeding like rabbits. 😛
