George & The Donkey!!
A city boy, George, 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."
George replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."
The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
George said, "OK then, just unload the donkey. "
The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"
George, "I'm going to raffle him off."
Farmer, " You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"
George, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he is dead."
A month later the farmer met up with Paul and asked,
"What happened with that dead donkey?"
George, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a
piece and made a profit of $898.00." Farmer, "Didn't anyone
George, " Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."
NOTE: George grew up and eventually became the head of a large karate organization. He is now retired in Florida and divides his time between playing golf and selling raffle tickets.
