A young cowboy named Kenny moved to Texas and bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
The following 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 back my money."
The farmer said, "I'm sorry, I can't do that. I spent it"
Kenny said, "OK. Just bring me the dead donkey."
The farmer asked, "What are you going to do with him?"
Kenny answered, "I am going to raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"
Kenny responded, "Sure I can. 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 answered, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998.00."
The farmer asked, "Did anyone complain?"
Kenny said, "Just the guy who won, so I gave him back his two dollars."
Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.
