Fair's Fair

A Cajun named Jean Paul moved to Texas and bought a donkey for $100 from an old farmer named Ben. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day, however, Ben drove up and said, “Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died.”

“Well, then, just give me the money back,” said Jean Paul.

“Can’t do that. I went and spent it already,” said Ben.

“OK, then. Just unload the donkey,” said Jean Paul.

“What are you going to do with him?” asked Ben.

“Raffle him off,” said Jean Paul.

“You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!” cried Ben.

“Sure I can,” said Jean Paul. “I just won’t say that he’s dead.”

A month later, Ben met up with the Cajun and asked, “What happened with that dead donkey?”

“I raffled him off, I did. I sold 500 tickets at $2 apiece and made a profit of $898,” said Jean Paul.

“Didn’t anyone complain?” Ben asked.

“Just the guy who won,” said Jean Paul. “So I gave him his two dollars back.”
