a break from the action

  1. Joke of the week

    Besides the rally, I mean.

    A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. 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."

    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, at least give me the donkey."

    The farmer asked, "What are you going to do with him?"

    Kenny replied, "I'm going to raffle him off."

    Farmer exclaimed, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

    Kenny replied, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he is dead."

    A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

    Kenny said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a profit of $898."

    Farmer asked, "Didn't anyone complain?"

    Kenny replied, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his money back."

    Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron Corp. (ENRNQ: news, chart, profile).

  2. That is a great "Paul Harvey" story...I liked it so much that I "stole" it and did it on my radio show that week...

    Don :)
