A young lad buys a donkey for $100, but when farmer delivers it, the donkey's dead. and the farmer's spent the money.
" I'll take it anyway and raffle it off", says the buyer.
" You can't raffle off a dead donkey", says the farmer.
" Yes I can, I just won't tell anybody it's dead", says the boy.
A month later they meet up again and the farmer asked what happened.
" I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898.00".
" Didn't anybody complain?", says the farmer.
" Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back".
The boy's now an investment banker in the city.
