Happy Monday - Pat's Donkey

Young Pat bought a donkey from a farmer for £100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey's died.'

Pat replied, 'Well then just give me my money back.' The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I've already spent it.'

Pat said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.' The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

Pat said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

The farmer said, 'You can't raffle a dead donkey!'

Pat said, 'Sure I can. Watch me... I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Pat and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'

Pat said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece and made a profit of £898'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Pat said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two pounds back.'

Pat now works for the Royal Bank of Scotland...
