Smart Investing

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 last  night.”

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 you gonna to do with him?”

Kenny: “I’m going to raffle him off.”  (Note: To raffle is to sell a thing
by lottery – draw lot -! to a group of  people each paying the same amount
for a ticket)

Farmer: “You can’t  raffle off a dead donkey!”

Kenny: “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t  tell anybody he’s 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 apiece and
made a profit of $998.00.”

Farmer: “Didn’t anyone complain?”

Kenny: “Just the guy who won.  So I gave him back his two dollars.”
