RAFFLING A DEAD DONKEY


Jean Paul, a Cajun, moved to Texas 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 got 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 are you gonna do with him?"


"I'm gonna raffle him off."


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


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


A month later the farmer met up with the Cajun and asked, "What happened with the dead donkey?"



"I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $898."


"Didn't anyone complain?"


"Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back."
