HUMOR: Dead donkey
Josh 201604 KWP
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."

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, "Okay then, just unload the donkey."

The farmer asked, "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 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 two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898.00."

"Didn't anyone complain?"

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

I used to do almost the same thing when I was a kid. Me and a friend would buy some fancy chocolate or something and have 5 prizes you could win. Then we'd walk around to apartments in our neighborhood selling raffle tickets. Of course all the people thought it was real cute because we were only like 7-8 years old so everyone bought tickets. We'd make shitloads of money this way.

We spent maybe $10 on buying chocolate as prizes and probably made at least $150 from selling the raffle tickets. that's $75+ each. When you're 7 years old that's quite a bit :)

Now I just need to figure out a similar scheme that I can employ today... *gears turning*

PS. Thanks for triggering that memory in my brain. It made me chuckle.

Hrm, wow... raffle tickets... Computer gear... EXCELLENT!

I sense the OmniTech Raffle coming up soon
