A Nice Friend Gave This to Me.
  A city boy moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $50.  The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
  The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news.  The donkey died."
  I replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."
  The farmer said, "Can't do that. I spent it already."
  I said, "Okay then, just unload the donkey."
  The farmer said, "What are you going to do with him?"
  I replied "I'll just raffle him off."
  He said "You can't raffle off a dead donkey."
  To which I said "Sure I can. Watch me."
  A month later the farmer met up with me and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"  I said "I raffled him off  -- sold 500 tickets at $2 apiece and made a profit of $948."
  Farmer: "Did anyone complain?"
  I replied "Just the guy who won.  So I gave him back his $2."
