How NOT To Run A Raffle

Young John moved to Maine and bought a horse from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

 The next day he drove up and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”

 John replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”

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

 John said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”

 The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”

 John said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”

 The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”

 John said, “Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”

 A month later, the farmer met up with John and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”

 John said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $900.”

 The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”

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