The Dead Donkey

A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey
from an old farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver
the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry son, but I
have some bad news. The donkey died.”

Kenny replied, “Well then, just give me my money back.”

The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”

Kenny said, “OK then, just unload the donkey.”

The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”


—“I’m going to raffle him off.”

Farmer———” You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”

Kenny———-“Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody
he is dead.”

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, “What
happened with that dead donkey?”

Kenny———-“I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars
a piece and made a profit of $898.00.”

Farmer———“Didn’t anyone complain?”

Kenny———“Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two
dollars back.”

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of a large Company.
