Joke: The Multi-Millionnaire and the $5000 Loan

Ok, you may have heard this before, but I think its hillarious.    Of course, this would never work at FastUpFront, because we don’t ask for collateral!  This joke is going to be outdated soon. 😉

A well-dressed blonde woman goes into a bank in centran Manhattan and sits down to speak with the loan officer.  She explains to him that she will be traveling to Europe and will need a $5000 loan.  The loan officer explains that the bank will need some sort of collateral.  The woman produces keys to a Rolls-Royce parked outside.  She offers them to the loan manager, along with an envelope containing the car title.  The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral.  As the woman leaves, there are some snickers that she would leave a $250,000 car as collateral for a $5000 loan.  One of the bank managers takes the keys and from the loan officer and drives the car himself into the bank’s underground parking. 

Two weeks later, the woman comes back and repays the loan, plus $15.43 interest.  As she is taking her keys back, the loan officer gets up the courage to ask the question which has been nagging at him:  “While you were gone, we looked into your financial situation and we found out that you are a multi-millionnaire.  Why would you need a $5000 loan?”  She replies “Where else in Manhattan can I leave my car for two weeks, still have it be there when I get back, and only pay $15.43 for parking?” 

Who said blondes were stupid?
