Young Kenny moved to Texas and bought a donkey from off of a farmer for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry, Kenny, 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, just bring me the dead donkey.”
The farmer asked, “What ya’ll gonna do with a dead donkey?”
Kenny said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
The farmer said “You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”
Kenny said, “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 said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898.00.”
The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”
Kenny said, “Just the loser who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.”
Kenny got his 2008 seven million bonus from off of Washington Mutual right on time.
