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, at least give me the donkey." The farmer
asked, "What ya gonna do with him?" Kenny, "I'm going to raffle
him off." The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"
Kenny said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What
happened with that dead donkey?" Kenny replied, "I raffled him
off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars each 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."

Another Version:

City boy, Andy, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer

for \$100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next

day.

The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some

bad news. The donkey died."

"Well, then, just give me my money back."

"Can't do that. I went and spent it already."

"OK, then. Just unload the donkey."

"What ya gonna do with him?"

"I'm going to raffle him off."

"You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

"Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

A month later the farmer met up with the city boy and asked, "What happened

with that dead donkey?"

"I raffled him off. I sold 500 hundred tickets at two dollars a piece and

made a profit of \$898."

"Didn't anyone complain?"

"Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back!"

This boy grew up to be a senior executive at Enron.....
