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 ya gonna do with him?" 

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

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

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

Farmer, "Didn't anyone complain?" 

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

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.
