    Morris, a city boy moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the mule 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, "Whatever happened with that dead donkey?"

    "I raffled him off. I sold 500 hundred tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998. "

    "Didn't anyone complain?"

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

    Actually, the profit would be $898, after the initial investment of $100 for the donkey...
