Mule Tale


An old country farmer with serious financial problems bought a mule from another old farmer for $100, who agreed to deliver the mule the next day.


However, the next day he drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news: The mule died."


"Well, then, just give me my money back."

"Can't do that. I went and spent it already." "OK, then. Just unload the mule."


"What ya gonna do with a dead mule?"


"I'm going to raffle him off."


"You can't raffle off a dead mule!"


"Sure I can. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."


A month later the two met up and the farmer who sold the mule asked,

"Whatever happened with that dead mule?"

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


"Didn't anyone complain?"


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