Young Westy, moved to Mt Cotton and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100.00. 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 died.'
Westy replied, 'Well,then just give me my money back.'
The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already.'
Westy said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'
The farmer asked, 'What are ya gonna do with him?
Westy said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'
The farmer said,
'You can't raffle off a dead donkey!'
'Sure I can. Watch me.. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'
A month later, the farmer met up with Westy and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'
Westy said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two Dollar's a piece and made a profit of $898.00.'
The farmer said,'Didn't anyone
Westy said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollar's back.'
Westy now works for the Australian Government
