Jonesey bought a donkey from Brathwaite, an old farming partner for $300.

Brathwaite agreed to deliver the donkey the following day.

One day later Brathwaite drove up and said; “Sorry Jonesey, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.” “Well give me back my money.” Said Jonesey.

“Worse news boy, I spent it already…” “Ok then, give me the dead donkey”

“…What are you going to do with a dead donkey?” Asked Brathwaite.

“I’m going to raffle him.” Jonesey said calmly. “Are you mad?

You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!!” “I can’t? I will! I’m just not going to tell anyone he’s dead.”

One month later the two ran into each other.

“Jonesey!” Brathwaite exclaimed, “ What happened with your dead donkey boy?” Jonesey beamed, “I raffled him off like I told you.

I sold 500 tickets at $5 dollars each and raked in $2,500! Brathwaite was shocked,

“…And no one complained about it being dead?”

“Only the guy who won, so I gave him back his $5.”
