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?”

Kenny——-

—“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.
