Optimist Frog

After the white-gloved butler and parlourmaid had removed the plates, and after two Johnny Walkers chased by two generous brandies had mellowed the prime minister, the Swedish minister felt it safe to ask him outright how Britain planned to pull through.
The reply that their host had lisped was in this vein:
'Once upon a time there were two frogs, Mr Optimist Frog and Mr Pessimist Frog.
One evening the two frogs hippety-hopped across the meadow enchanted by the smell of fresh milk from a dairy. They hopped through the dairy window and plopped right into a pail of milk.'
The P.M. applied a fresh match to his cigar, enjoying the attention that his fable was attracting.
'The pailís sides were too steep', he continued. 'Mr Pessimist Frog soon gave up and sank to the bottom. But Mr Optimist Frog took courage and began thrashing around, hoping to get out somehow. He didnít know how, but he wasn't going to give up without a fight. He churned around all night, and by morning - oh joy! - he was floating on a pat of butter.'
Taking a long puff at his cigar, Churchill concluded, 'I'm Mr Optimist Frog!'
