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 ya
gonna 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
” 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
a piece and made a profit of $898.00.”

Farmer: “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Kenny: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his two dollars.”

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.
